3. SASPS is providing a Tutorial Service with a schedule for the whole year, enabling students to speak with the tutor on the phone.
4. There is the choice between an examination and an assignment to achieve the goal of a certificate or diploma.
5. Students can assess their progress in learning by a Self Assessment Paper they will receive from SASPS seven weeks before the examination/assignment submission date.
6. Five weeks before the examination/assignment submission date students will be getting a Revision Paper with multiple choice questions; the model answers will be sent out to the students two weeks later.
7. Students opting for an examination will receive a previous Examination Paper in time before the examination date; the model answers will be presented and discussed at the revision lecture (see below).
8. Two weeks before the examination SASPS will have a Revision Lecture which will focus on a previous examination paper and also enables students to ask the lecturer questions related to the respective subject. SASPS is able to offer this revision lecture at 10 different venues twice a year (see Annual Schedule).
9. Examinations are conducted twice a year for each course at 10 venues for those students who want their knowledge to be assessed this way.
10. Those students who live or work too far away from the venues have the choice to be assessed by way of an assignment.
11. Students will get the opportunity to rate SASPS’s Distance Learning Program and its administration through an Evaluation Form, which can be anonymous if required.
