4 big benefits of home studying

No matter what’s happening in the world, home studying allows you to set the pace around your own lifestyle. So if you can’t find the time to attend a regular classroom course, or you’re keen to progress your learning on your own terms, you’re not alone. Keep reading to find out why we believe studying at home is so effective.

1. Flexible

Home studying cuts out the classroom. This is why it’s become so popular in today’s tech-savvy world. Instead of commuting to a set location every week, you can simply log on from home. We all have commitments, some bigger than others, but when you take a distance learning course you’re free to set the pace. If you have kids, you don’t have to arrange childcare. If you work full-time, you can fit learning around evenings or weekends. You’re free to study in your own space, with your own set up.

There’s so much flexibility, so it works for almost anybody. As long as you have free time and want to hit the virtual books, you can do so. This makes for a better study/life balance as you don’t have to spend time getting to a classroom, and you don’t have to wait for your next lesson.

2. Personalised

Whilst we all need human contact, studying at home cuts out any unnecessary distractions. You only cover the content you need, and there are no other students asking questions you know the answers to. Learn in your own style on your own terms. With Eagle, you’re free to revisit old topics or look ahead to new ones. We don’t tie you down.

You can even take your own breaks when you need to catch up with family or friends. Studying at home doesn’t mean you’re isolated.

3. Cost-effective

With an online distance learning course, there are fewer overheads. No full-time tutor means savings get passed on to you, making your studies more affordable. And, as you’re at home, you don’t have to fork out on travel costs. You’re also likely to progress more quickly as you don’t have to wait for your next lesson. You can simply log on and brush up on your knowledge. With an Eagle subscription, you only pay for what you use, so there are no further costs once you’ve passed. The only thing you may find costing you more money is the extra tea or coffee.

4. Sustainable

With most accountancy courses, you’re looking at between 6 – 12 months to complete a level. To pass the full qualification, it will likely take between 3 – 5 years. So while a classroom course may work for you right now, chances are it won’t in the future. Circumstances and priorities are ever changing, but if you’re studying at home you can nearly always find time to log on. Whether it’s a bite-size session or a full afternoon of revision. It’s always there when you need it.
