Choose a study style that suits you

Are you a self-studier or do you prefer tuition? 

A self-study learner is self- driven, prefers to learn independently because they can grasp new things fast and have a great attention to detail. If these are not your strong points then you should consider the benefits of learning with CIPS approved tutors.



We've highlighted some key differences that you can expect in the different learning styles.
