Hi, it's different types of cost. So one type of cost will be tuition fee, another is accommodation, another is course materials (books, laptop, etc), and childcare costs if applicable to you, there are few others. So base your questions around those. I think we may have the same assessor as I did get exactly the same feedback.

Not going to lie but I'm struggling a little bit as I have been out of education for 12 years. I'm hoping I'll get used to the amount of writing needed. I have read people who struggled with it but still finished it, so it's still possible. Just have to put more effort and hard work.

Same here, I left school in 2005 so it’s been difficult so far putting what I want to say into words. I’m sure we will both be fine and complete it

Hi, I don't know what course you are doing, but i (thankfully) am so close to the finish line. a top tip for you - if you have a unit called Study Skills Portfolio Building, start looking into it now and keep it in mind when you are completing other units......its a non graded unit which is near the end of my course and to be honest, a complete ball ache of a unit!
Make sure you answer just what the question is asking and try not to over think the question!
good luck x

Hi, thank you for the heads up Yes I do have that unit for Access to Nursing. Also, how long did it take you to finish the course and how much study time did you allocate per week? Thanks

ive still got 2 units to complete but started in August. I think I could have had it finished now if I didn't take a month off at Christmas!! I found first couple of units quite tough as its been years since i have studied and also i found the whole content boring! I enjoyed doing the units that are relevant to the course and found these easy to read and write about! I went though stages of studying loads (approx 4-6 hours a day) to some days and weekends, doing absolutely nothing. It has also helped me being ahead too - I have units sitting waiting marking - if you can get ahead that will help! don't wait for the assessors to mark your work before you start on the next one....and 100% keep an eye on Study Skills Portfolio Building - they ask for things that "you would have done" throughout your course......
Get on a whatsapp/text group with people doing the same course as you as possible - you'll get so much support from others on your group compared to the support you'll get with stonebridge!

Thank you so much! Those are really good tips, although 4-6 hours a day (well done you!) will be impossible for me. I work full time and have kids so can probably squeeze in max of 3 hours a day and more on weekends. And yes the first two units are a bit dry and really struggled with it (still waiting for unit 2 to be marked). Congratulations to you, almost there.

I’m just on the last question of unit 2 omg it’s so dry and confusing 🙁. I’m lucky at the minute as I’m maternity leave however the last 2days my 4month old daughter has decided she hates sleep lol

Want to ask you one more thing please. Can you submit a first draft of your next assignment while waiting for your last assignment to be marked? Will they allow you to do that? Thanks
