Here at Fircroft, we recognise that studying online may not come as naturally to everyone straight away. As we have introduced new blended learning courses into our curriculum we want to ensure that all those taking an online course feel supported and comfortable learning from home. We would therefore encourage any students who are about to start learning online, or have an interest in online learning, to enrol onto one of our How to Study Online sessions.
