id=“mod_12993102”>ICS distance learning (International Correspondence Schools) provides online courses for students who will rather study from home. First founded in the United States in the late 1800s and referred to as Correspondence Schools, its branch which opened in the United Kingdom at the turn of the 20th century now serves as its headquarters and has an enrolment of thousands of students from about a hundred countries all over the world.

Not unlike today's form of online education, enrolling for correspondence courses over a century ago, though through mail services, is the pioneer of what we now know as distance learning.

Unlike many distance learning schools, getting an education through ICS distance learning courses is affordable, especially when compared to the exorbitant costs of on school campus education of today. Learning is easy and flexible, schoolsindia and students receive great support from not only designated tutors but from a highly effective student's online interactive community.

The ICS course study is planned to be convenient for each individual student because the study provides all the necessary information and educational materials that a student will require before, during, and sometimes even after successful completion of a course.

Enrolling for ICS Courses Enrolling for a course doesn't require any prior experience and many do not necessarily require qualifications. However, some of ICS courses require that students own learning tools and equipment like a computer, a laptop, or a notebook, including full access to the internet.

When these necessary requirements are met, enrolling students won't need anything else because all course materials needed will be provided for by the school. Further information on what may be required by each student, depending on the chosen course, can be found in the Technical Requirements' section of the course pages.

After enrolling and payments are processed, the necessary course materials will be delivered to students within a few days.

Costs of Study

The cost of study varies widely, depending on the course and the qualifications that students expect to get on completion of the education. You will find the price for each individual course indicated on the web page dedicated to that qualification.

Most of the international correspondence schools offer convenient payment plans subject to a minimum deposit, so you can enrol for a course and only pay a fraction of the fees after an agreed upon payment terms, but substantial savings can be made, if you decide to pay for the entire course in full.

Study Duration

ICS distance learning course duration varies from one course to another. The time it takes to complete the course will always depend on how much time a student has to devote to learning each day and each week. However, most students complete their course study within one year to eighteen months, but there are a number of courses that require longer periods of studies.

Study Methods of ICS Distance Learning School Courses are planned and developed to allow students to study on their own terms, in their own time, whether from home, from the office, or even from a public library.

There are over a hundred courses and thousands of subjects with the schools offering everything from GCSEs, A Levels, and Diplomas, to BA, BSc., MA, and MSc degree programs, plus they offer professional qualifications in associations with professional bodies and institutes.

Courses are available for overseas students from any part of the world and all courses are distance learning based. This means you can study in your own time and at your own pace. Some of the courses offered by ICS distance learning schools include, but is not limited to the following:

Creative & Interest


Interior Design


Creative Writing

Study Skills

Fashion and Beauty

Creative Designs

Animal Care



Writing Books for Children

IT Technical Courses

ICS Examinations

Most ICS Diploma courses don't require an examination, but what is required is a continuous assessment of each individual student, but there are some courses that require that enrolled students must sit for a few exams. Students will, however, receive information beforehand about what exams to take and when to take them. The information will be relayed electronically, in their first study shipment.

Student Support at ICS Learn It is gladdening to know that distance learning doesn't mean you will be studying in isolation. Because you are studying off-campus does not mean you are studying alone. Students can contact the school's Student Advisers who will give practical assistance throughout the course, including granting access to online student community chat rooms.

ICS Learn online student community has been designed to allow students interact with and learn from other international correspondence students, members and education experts, including getting involved in interactive discussions and having access to an online research library. Students will also be able to voice their opinions through students' surveys.

For paper-based studies, students benefit from the support of experienced, dedicated and knowledgeable tutors. They will mark students work, comment, and provide feedback and encouragement by answering any questions students may have during the course of their online education.

Distance Education - Pros and Cons of Online Study

Benefits of Studying from Home at ICS Learn Being a distance learning course, students can learn and study wherever they are and whenever they wish. And the best thing about 'attendance' is that one need not give up a current job or family commitments to a study at correspondence schools online.

If you are a student, you will get full support to make your studies easy to implement. All your paper-based subjects can be split into smaller modules made up of clearly identified study units which you can then work through at your own pace.

After you complete each unit, you will get test papers sent to you online. Depending on which course it is, you will receive them by fax or by courier services. Your tutor will expect you to complete it and send back to him or her for marking and grading. The tutor will then return the test papers with his/her marks and comments. With the successful completion of each module, the student is then ready for the next one.

Hello Mary Grace.

It depends on where you reside and if you want to enrol online or at an on-campus school.

However, If you Google - “where to study stenography in…..” - and add which state or region you want to study (where the dotted lines are) you will get answers.

Meanwhile, you can try this link - website

Hope it'll lead you to answers you require.

Dionisio thanks for stopping by.

I'm not quite sure of your question. Which school of architecture did you study? I Know it's not ICS because they don't offer architecture.

Secondly, ICS Learn is not my school :) It's a correspondence school that's for online study wherever you may be.

That is the beauty of Home courses/ICS. Communication can be through email,phone, etc. because your tutors will be constantly there for you at any time and from anywhere.

So, yes Bdouble, you can definitely keep in touch with your professor through email, and you can guarantee that you will receive a timely response because that is what they are there for. To tutor extensively through distance learning.

Best of luck.

Thanks Agent007.

Now education is soon going to be available to all those interested in pursuing one. And become very affordable too.

That's really great news.

It's definitely good that technology is bridging the gap for people who don't have access to an education. Great article!
