Boston City Campus
The Boston Group is a pioneer in private higher education specialising in online and distance learning over the past 30 years. The advantages of home-schooling are indisputable, with academic performance at the top of the list.
Studying through a pandemic has been a challenge for students. Some institutions (like Boston!) managed to take their students from classroom to dining room table seamlessly, while others battled to create a virtual classroom. Boston has always relied on technology as an effective learning methodology as technology ensures: academic consistency, quality, delivery and validity of all materials and knowledge transfer.
With over 100 different career paths, and all degrees, diplomas and higher certificates offered fully online, plus over 45 campuses for those who wish to try and experience some form of masked varsity life, Boston continued on its successful throughput of students even during 2021. The high student satisfaction quotient of students also continued due to online, video and messaging support, both academic and personal.
