What is the difference between the online Diploma course series and the Home Study Course
The STA Diploma Part 1 and 2 courses are lecture based and fully interactive. Each week the students log in to Zoom for a live lecture where they have the ability to ask the tutor questions. If they miss a lecture then they can catch up with a recording post event. Access to lecture recordings is made available to students for the duration of the course.
The Home Study Course is like an ebook, ie. not video based. Students can start the Home Study Course at any point and take as long as they like to prepare for the examinations rather than following a strict schedule.
The success rate of both methods of learning is very similar so the decision as to which route you choose to prepare for the Diploma qualification depends on your preferred method and lifestyle.
