So you have been through the interview and have been offered a place on the programme. What do you need to do before you start?
The books will provide you with a good grounding for beginning the course and the pre-course assignment question will give the academic tutors a clear idea about the level of support you will need to complete the level 7 assignments.
2. Complete your qualification submission.
If you were missing any qualification certificates or NARIC certificates at the interview then make sure you find them and submit them. Sometimes you may need to apply for copies of your certificates from the examining body.
3. Complete your identification checks.
