Face to Face Learning
This is for those learning providers that offer full or part time classroom based tuition delivered at a learning provider’s premises. Full-time tuition typically takes place over a period of several weeks or months. For the duration of the course, students may be taught one or more of the ACCA’s examinations, learning the syllabus and applying the knowledge acquired through question practice and mastering examination techniques.
This is for those learning providers that offer courses that are primarily accessible online. Learning can take place at any geographical location and students can learn at their own pace with 24/7 access. Students are offered the full online learning experience. For example, students should expect to have access to live or pre-recorded lectures, while supported remotely by tutors or subject area experts.
Online courses are structured and offer recommendations for the most effective ways to achieve optimum results, including coursework and mock examination requirements. Students should have the flexibility to organise their study and attempt any coursework in their own time. If teaching is solely undertaken face to face with supplementary support online, this would be considered face to face tuition
This is for providers that offer a learning experience that combines face to face tuition and online learning through access to live or pre-recorded lectures in a single course. Participation in both elements of the tuition is necessary to complete the course and students can access their tuition both face to face and online.
