Study methods

As BSY has grown over its 78 years, so have our methods of study. Still a firm favourite with our long term students are our traditional paper based courses, but in more recent years we have been pleased to offer a new suite of qualifications online using 3 unique learning platforms.
All of our courses are available for study by distance learning meaning that you study wherever it suits you. We do not set strict deadlines and our support team are on hand to help you whenever you need it.
Traditional Paper-based study
Our traditional BSY courses are provided in paper format and delivered to you by post. Your initial course pack will include all you need to get you started.
As you submit your assignments, either by post or by email, your next course units will be sent out for you to complete.
Online study
