7. Cost. Who hasn’t been wondering about this one?! Okay, let’s be honest, you do need to
fund your own course of study. ACS students are not usually eligible for government fee help
or student loan schemes, however we have kept our course fees as low as possible. We
recognise that cost can be a limiting factor, so we have made it possible for you to pay for
your course in parts. You will not enter a weekly or fortnightly payment scheme or contract
with a credit agency when enrolling with our school. 

8. Entry flexibility. Yes! We offer that too. We have daily intakes. Enrolments are not entirely
automated. We look after each enrolment for everyone. That makes us very busy, but now
you know you will not be paying a website and receiving an account. We have a fully staffed
and operational student services department who process your payments and activate your
student files. You will receive access to your course as soon as your enrolment is finalised.
We work hard to ensure new enrolments have same day access (Monday – Friday).
