10 Reasons You’ll Love Online Study
Online study is fast becoming the study trend of the future. With access to the internet opening up through mobile, as well as desktop and a variety of online resources.
The doors to study, have opened for those who are starting out their careers, as well as for those already working in the hospitality industry who are looking to update their skills or add to their skill set. International Hotel School’s Online platform offers exceptional qualifications to online students, with the added benefits of flexibility, convenience and online support.
Here are 10 reasons online study is becoming the study method of choice for so many:
You set your own timetable. With online study you can study whenever you are able to, so you can easily balance your personal and professional life. Create a study timetable that incorporates work, study and social commitments and stick to your timetable. Email reminders, notifications and regular deadlines keep you on track and focused on achieving your study outcomes through our Online platform.
Access is easy. If you have access to the internet, and ideally your computer, you will have access to your studies wherever you are. This saves you travel and transport fees and allows you to be more flexible with your timetable.

Variety is key. Whether it is a full qualification you are looking for – or a short course to brush up your knowledge on a certain aspect – we have an Online course that will suit you. Study a specialisation course, a registered qualification (Higher Certificate or Diploma) or even just a subject that is of interest to you.

It makes financial sense. Online study offers discounts for upfront payments, flexible payment terms and easy online payment facilities - ideal for those who are following a budget. We are also able to assist with the facilitation of student loans for full qualification programmes, and short-term loans for short courses too. Additionally, sometimes employers are also willing to partially or wholly pay for your studies if they see your work/study commitment. Another financial benefit is the savings you make by not having to purchase expensive textbooks.
