Facilities and Services

We understand that not all students are in a position to attend face-to-face classes due to work, family or other commitments, or would prefer the flexibility of an alternative delivery method. We believe that such commitments should not prevent people from receiving a high-quality education, and, as a result, are proud to offer several of our diploma-level qualifications in an online format. We make it easy for you to study online.

Our online portal has been carefully designed to make online study easy, allowing students to receive the same high-quality training, but with a flexibility to work around their other commitments.

As an online student, you will still receive the same support and quality training that all our students receive; you will have a dedicated and experienced trainer and training coordinator to support you through your studies. The goal with our online offerings is to provide the same BCA experience but from the comfort of your own home.

Admission and Selection

The BCA National Admissions Board will take prior educational attainment and the other information you provide as a candidate to determine your academic suitability for the course you are applying to enter.
