Our four study methods

We’ll help you fit your studies around your work and personal commitments; whether you prefer a structured approach to learning, or a more flexible option.

You can select different study methods for individual units (mix and match), or stick with the same study option throughout a full course, allowing you to progress in a way that suits your lifestyle.

Whichever study method you choose, you’ll still get the same levels of Kaplan quality:

  • Confidence - hundreds of practice questions and marked mock exams with personal feedback
  • Support - expert tutor support until late, including evenings and weekends. Get an instant response with Live Chat, or within four working hours by email, or request a callback
  • Flexibility - a greater choice of study methods and course start dates, so you can study when it suits you and pay with flexible funding options.

Our four study options cater to different needs:
