More about our study options

Distance Learning

At the heart of all our courses is our distance learning course. You receive a wealth of targeted material that allows you to study in your own time and at your own pace. The material comprises:

  • Study manuals
  • Question banks
  • Memory joggers
  • Audio visual lectures where applicable – based on the Tolley Tax Tutor product
  • Practice exams – which are marked by Tolley
  • Access to tutor support via the online Tolley Academy

Our ‘Print and Online’ option gives you paper and online copies of the study manuals, question banks, and memory joggers. Our ‘Online’ option does not include paper copies.  For all 2022 bookings onwards the Online materials will be accessed via secure e-book and there will be no facility to print from this.

For both the print and online options, revision question banks and practice exams are only available online via our Timed On-Screen Mock (TOM) system.

Tuition – Online Tuition Live or classroom

Enhance your Distance Learning with face-to-face classroom or virtual Online Tuition Live (OTL) courses delivered by experienced tutors. These courses explain the technical topics in a straightforward way, focusing on the key areas for the examination.

OTL provides you with the same high-quality teaching you receive in the classroom but with the added flexibility of joining from the comfort of your own home or office. All sessions are recorded so you can watch any sessions you miss, or re-cap on any topics you’re unsure of.
