Just a shame it's England only but heat added.
sorry if seems a daft question, but do you really qualify for a NUS card for home study?
England only ??? how is it not discrimination ?

The courses are funded by your local council authority.

How to get NUS card?
How do I get an NUS card
I'd strongly advise anyone thinking of taking up a free course just for the craic (or the NUS card) to have a read of the FAQs, etc.

Whilst those three criteria above are the absolute minimum, the wording suggests to me that these "free" courses (as stated above) are funded from the skills budget via the local authority, and it mentions the possibility of contacting your employer (presumably as part of applying for the course funding to ensure that the course has some relevance to your job).

It also mentions that there may be an administration fee to pay if you don't progress through much of the course (so this isn't a case of just blindly applying for something of not much interest to you!)
Great company I have completed 3 courses with them!:D

Interesting why would they need to contact your employer? Could you let me know where it says that so i can have a read?

Thanks

They may be able to get the course funded by your employer, if not it's funded by your local council or the college. The money has to come from somewhere.
Thanks. My application has been accepted
Are there any other websites for free courses ?
Nice to see a Diabetes Care course listed. I may have been diabetic for nearly 40 years, but it's taken its toll. Hopefully I'll take something from this. And the NUS card is a nice wee bonus to boot!
Heat and thanks.

​You usually get assigned a college or uni that your doing the course through eg Easton& Otley College, so you would probably put that

Free if you're Scottish and European but not free if you're English or Welsh but all paid for by......All Britsh Taxpayers! Clearly something not right - Just wait until the SNP increase taxes - More migrants but heading south this time!
Heat from me. Lizzie18, FutureLearn and Coursera do free, online, university-level courses. Search them on Google.
Sorry funding for the Diabetes Care – Level 2 course is not currently available in your area

Just "Equality and Diversity" and "Lean Organisation Management Techniques" seem to be available in south glos

Done a lot of coursera courses and they are normally very good, though they are pushing for paid certification quite heavily. There has only been one course that i couldn't do as i didn't want to pay, though imagine that might become more frequent.

I want to get my mum to try and move on and focus on new things after my grandma passed away recently. She used to be a full time carer, so she has nothing else to really keep her occupied at the moment. This might be just what she needs, so thanks for this. Are there any other similar services that anyone could also recommend?

Posting any deal might give a little justification to your moaning.
Subscribed. Thanks OP.

To get the NUS card you have to do all the normal things students do like going on demos, spending all your grant on the latest ipod or missing your lecture due to a hangover from last night. Please note this is just a few of the things that happens in the life of a student, the list is endless. For more information please send a S.A.E

Dear Premierefella[
I understand the point you are making but if you have the connection it wont be a problem. A good example is Genera Horales Manuel Noriega, once he fell out with the Cocaine cartel he had nowhere to hide when the CIA came looking for the harvest.
I got excited, however, to be honest, these are basic of the basic skills. But then, maybe I was in utopia thinking I can enroll on CS course from Imperial College or something...
