Voted Best College for 12 years running – here’s why!

With over 100 different career paths, and all degrees, diplomas and higher certificates offered fully online, plus 45 campuses for those who wish to try and experience some form of masked varsity life, Boston continued on its successful throughput of students even during the 2020 pandemic.

Deciding where and what to study are huge decisions, and now in 2021 with the world in a state of flux and chaos, this decision is a scary one. 

With over 100 different career paths, and all degrees, diplomas and higher certificates offered fully online, plus 45 campuses for those who wish to try and experience some form of masked varsity life, Boston continued on its successful throughput of students even during the 2019 pandemic. The high student satisfaction quotient of students also continued due to online, video and messaging support, both academic and personal. 

There are many factors to consider when you choose a place of Higher Learning, especially when environmental factors are so imposing on everyday life. Create a check list of what is important from your higher education institution! These should include:

  • Flexibility of study options to include online so that no crisis will disrupt studies
  • A study ‘anywhere anytime’ approach that still allows access to contact centres for use of facilities, peer discussions, access to training advisors
  • Direct and personal access to lecturers to explain material 
  • Convenient location to avoid costs of student res, and travel.
  • Fees are important – so find out – are my text books included and if not, how much extra will they cost?  Can I make payment arrangements?
  • Because of the strained economic times we now face, Boston has committed for semester A of 2021 to NO FEE INCREASE!
  • Very important – is the degree or diploma accredited locally? And globally recognised? Will I be able to take my studies further both locally and internationally? 
  • How will the institution help prepare me for the world of work, and what assistance is given?

What type of history does the institution have?

Why does Boston place value on international accreditation? Anyone aspiring for a corporate career needs a global mindset in the current business environment. 'International' is a serious concept in today’s marketplace. It is a highly valued aspect of ones CV. Even when you operate locally, it makes you that much more attractive to your local employers. Boston was awarded accreditation as an Independent Higher Education institution with the British Accreditation Council (BAC). Boston is also a candidate for accreditation of specific programmes with the ACBSP (Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programmes), United States of America. 

All Boston Higher Education and occupational qualifications are accessible online, allowing students to easily study from home/work, or at a support centre. While distance learning traditionally involved sending the learner a set of books, Boston preferred a different approach and curated online lectures in order to teach and explain text, and give over personal industry experience from the lecturers. This raises the academic success rate of students. Boston students personally contact their lecturers when they need.

Boston prepares students for work – it’s that simple. Whether as a business owner, an entrepreneur or an employee. The Graduate+ Programme is part of the Boston ethos of putting our students at the centre of our educational offering. Boston provides a personalised learning experience, meeting the educational and work environment needs of each student. The Graduate+ programme offers students a guarantee that should they not find work within 6 months of graduation, Boston will assist them through the CV programme in training of CV building and job interview techniques, attempt to place them in employment and/or provide them with a higher qualification for free, 

Experience has shown that matching interests to a chosen career vastly increases academic and employment success. Therefore, the Career Compass was developed in order to ensure an appropriate match between interest and work. Academic as well as workplace success soars, when you are studying or working with what you love. With results available immediately from the online assessment, you can be applying for the most appropriate career within one hour! 

Boston’s offerings include:  Postgraduate; Higher Certificates, Diplomas, and Degrees, short Learning Programmes; Succeed at short courses and basic entry level work based Occupational Qualifications
