Advantages: Independent approach encouraged, good teaching, wide range of courses
Disadvantages: It's not cheap if you work
I am currently studying a web design course at my local college. The course itself is only at the intermediate level but it's a pre requisite before undertaking the next level. The college has a huge range of course available from the academic to the vocational which seem to leave very few stones unturned. The course is ideal for me as it's a 10 week course which only requires 3 hours each week as a night course.
The course is structured so that a tutor is on hand to answer any queries we are having but mostly encourages us to be proactive by providing a series of handouts for us to undertake. Once we have completed the handouts and feel confident enough to begin the assignment we can. This provides the flexibility and incentive of finishing the course early. One of the real pluses of night classes is you can be guaranteed that no one present has gone there with the intention of messing around or distracting and so you can reap the best out of the course without these irritations.
It also helps that the teacher has a sense of humour and clearly does not fall into the serious teaching mould. However with that said he is able to provide the help needed to fully assist you when required. I am now on week 3 of the course and feel quite confident about the main aspects now.
As mentioned there is a huge number of courses to choose from and this has helped provide and maintain my incentive for further learning at this college. Therefore overall I am very impressed with the organisation, professionalism and areas of interest covered.
Summary: Excellent so far
