I found the online study-from-home system of the Academy very useful and easy to use. I was able to complete units, unit projects and assignments on my own time and with no time limit (except for the timeframe of completing the overall course). This meant that I was able to study as and when it suited me – I could set a certain time each day to get some study done, whilst also completing other life tasks.
For anyone who is considering starting studying with the New Zealand Academy of Wedding & Event Planning, I would highly recommend it. It is and easy and fun way to learn and doesn’t get in the way of other aspects of your life.
