Online Courses including Photography, Excel, Health & Fitness £1.99 @ GoGroupie

Found 19th Feb 2016
Mentioned recently in a few NUS threads in the comments....but this really deserves its own deal!

For its happy meal price....you get around 10 lessons/modules in your chosen field delivered as individual bytesize 1hr live virtual classes, access to recorded sessions for any you miss...an exam to win yourself a NCFE Diploma level 4 qualification...the right to call yourself a student and eat beans on toast

Most will obv take advantage of the fact its a NUS approved edu centre to claim your deserved student cards for £13 posted

Others will relive that feeling of sleeping during lectures, being late to class.....yet somehow its amazingly good value for money and worth achieving the qualification which sounds better then it actually is!!

The Shaw Academy is not listed under a place of study for NUS extra card scheme. If it is still possible please can kindly advise otherwise the description is incorrect. Thank you.

I just bought a Card and it has The Shaw Academy on it so I don't know what you're chatting on.

Awesome, someone answered my question. You sir are correct and it is in fact listed. I was going by someone else's comment and the fact I couldn't find it since I didn't type "The". Cheers!

I'm more interested in where you get your happy meals for £1.99 as that is a deal in itself. They are about £2.49 now.

£1.99 means I don't care if it's rubbish. Bought one for photography, cheers OP.
Anyone know if these are worth it or is it better just to watch youtube tutorials.

The FAQ says this:

Upon course completion a final assignment will be made available. There … Upon course completion a final assignment will be made available. There is a €5 administration charge for non-members to complete the final assignment and receive the certificate. All certificates are free for members.



Does anyone know what it means by members? Members of what?

It also says

Upon completion of the final online exam you can apply for your NCFE … Upon completion of the final online exam you can apply for your NCFE accredited diploma. Instructions are provided before you commence the final exam. You must pay £15 fee for hard copy Diplomas to be delivered



I assume the £1.99 doesn't include the cost of the Diploma being sent to you?

Has anyone done one of these courses before? Are they any good?

​Should get 200,000 ppl who think like you and start a pyramid scheme and every week pick one person who gets all the money then we have a few home owners on the market and only out of pocket just under £8 a month, only downside is some ppl waiting along time to get their payout but better than lottery eh

I know the site says "We are accredited by the NCFE Diploma level 4" but are all courses at level 4 or various levels up to level 4 because I can't see anywhere that actually states the level?

What are NCFE qualifications equivalent too? Last thing I want to do be doing is adding a made up qualification to my CV!

Level 2 would be equivalent to GCSEs and level 3 to A-level. Level 4 would be high diploma (or something like that).

NCFE is a recognised qualification.
I'd like a go on a groupie
Just signed on for photography - will see how it goes - thanks OP

can't go wrong at that price - two-thirds of a happy meal (approx)
brilliant deal , other half been looking into it but must be noted that there seems to be an admin fee at the end of the course and then a £15 charge for a hard copy of the certification
Always wanted to learn more about Photography and it's official, I'm a student again. Thanks OP. Now going to apply for my NUS card

Did you get the option of taking another one Free of charge with your photo course purchase?
Digital marketing or psychology of sales would sound slightly better on the ol' LinkedIn but photography is probably a bit more interesting. Hmmm.
Digital marketing booked :). Thanks.

If I'm honest, I didn't pay that much attention.

Doesn't start until 7th March, or 7th April, you choose.
On my reading you only have access for 1 month. There is no way I'd have time to do 10 modules in 1 month.

Great i did it
Did anyone manage to get a student card from this? The NUS website asks for a student number but I haven't been given one by Shaw Academy so not sure you can actually do it.
Can't find my Student Number to progress with the NUS card...
Thanks OP
Took excel course and got a free course including the ones on sale for free so 2 courses for £1.99

Could you please make a separate post of this? They are mostly but not all the same courses, offered by the same college but without dealing with the horrendous GoGroupie who are very obviously cashing in.
