However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.

Tochigi City

There are parts of the course that I was a complete novice to, especially with respect to the business element. Any problems I had, or questions that arose, were answered helpfully by tutors and student support. It doesn’t feel like you are being handed a ton of information and then left in the dark to complete your studies. Help and encouragement are there when you need it.
