Why Study With Us

  • Approved by the MOD 

          Army - RAF - Royal Navy


  • Our HM Forces Team all have considerable experience of service life and fully understand the challenges that you face

We are all either former serving members or dependents of  former serving members of the Armed Forces and have a thorough understanding of the vagaries of service life and the difficulties that you may face as a result.  We will give you no-nonsense advice and will always strive to provide you with options that best suit your personal and professional circumstances.

  • We have the widest range of courses in the marketplace 

  • We recognise your existing experience

All of our awards offer the potential for varying levels of accreditation dependent upon your rank, experience and qualifications.  We have mapped the curriculums of a number of military leadership and specialist trade courses and are able to offer accreditation in recognition of their completion.  For more details, please consult the course literature or contact a member of the HM Forces Team.   

  • Flexibility

All of our awards are studied via our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) so as long as you have access to a reliable internet connection, you should be able to study regardless of where you are in the world, or we may be able to devise a bespoke study plan to meet your requirements.  If you find yourself deployed or personal circumstances mean that you are unable to study for a while, you can apply to intermit (pause) your studies and then return to them once you are in a position to do so. 

  • Great value for money course fees

Our awards are very competitively priced and as we are an Approved Enhanced Learning Credit (ELC) Provider you can use your ELC’s to part fund your studies.   We also offer the opportunity to spread the cost of your Personal Contribution across a series of instalments.

  • Transferrable skills

Transfer your military skill sets & experience to the civilian marketplace.

  • Fully supported

The VLE provides easy access to our tutors, some of whom are also former members of the Armed Forces.   They are contactable via email, telephone and even Skype (if pre-arranged) for expert guidance throughout your studies.  Many of the degrees have an integrated module aimed at equipping students with essential skills for study.  This is particularly useful if this is your first experience of Higher Education or you have been out of education for a while.
