What’s the difference between standard and full day Live Online courses?

Hands typing on a laptop

If you don’t already know, Live Online is our accessible and flexible online study method. You get the structure and schedule of classroom learning, but you can study wherever you want.

We offer afternoon and evening (standard) or full day options. But what does this mean? Let us explain.

Full day Live Online

As it suggests, you study all day on a full day Live Online course. So that’s 9:30am - 4:30 pm.

The classes are capped at 40 students, and they provide an exact replica of a classroom course and programme in terms of syllabus coverage. You also get the same short breaks as you would if you were in a face to face situation.

This is to replace any classroom lessons that can’t take place, at the moment, or in the future.

Afternoon/Evening (Standard) Live Online

Afternoon or Evening Live Online classes are our usual offering. Each session lasts two and a half hours, though AAT does offer morning sessions at some levels.

You have to do slightly more home study and reading in your own time around the sessions than on the full day option, but it’s still like classroom learning. You have to attend and stick to the scheduled session times.

Similarities

So apart from the timings, it’s mostly the same.

You still get live, tutor led classes at set times, the ability to rewatch your lessons, and the ability to talk to your classmates during the class via a live chat panel. So you know you’ll get to ask questions and interact.

You’ll also get marked mock exams, learning materials, tutor support, and access to the academic support team seven days a week.

Like the sound of Live Online?

To take up either option you have to select the course you want from the product pages, and the study method, then you will eventually be given the option to select which Live Online version you want. It will give you the options: ‘day’, ‘afternoon’ or ‘evening’ and show the times of the classes.

If you think this might be the study method for you check out our Live Online information - you can find out which qualifications you can study, and when the sessions take place.
