What does Shaw Academy offer virtual students?

Studying with Shaw Academy offers all the benefits of higher education without the need for commuting or sticking to a rigid timetable. All of the virtual courses are available through twice-weekly live webinars led by our exclusive educators.

Aimed at students who want to boost their career or start a business, the courses are packed full of a mix of academic and practical information. Crafted by Shaw Academy educators to be useful in the real world, this mix of academic and theoretical ensures students get the most from the modules.

How long has Shaw Academy been offering online education?

We launched in 2012 with just one course available and around 700 students. Since then, we have enrolled millions of students from around the world. To ensure our platform is as accessible as possible, all new students can try it for four weeks absolutely free.

Four weeks is the time it takes to worth through the first module of any one of the courses available in our catalogue. When you’ve completed Module 1 of your chosen course, you’ll then have the option to subscribe and continue your online education.

If you choose to continue, you then get access to all of our courses for one monthly subscription. There’s no limit to the number of courses you can study at the same time, so it really does open up a world of opportunity. And if you decide it’s not for you after the first four weeks, then there’s no commitment to carry on.

On our main website (shawacademy.com) you’ll find details of each course, including exactly what’s covered in each lesson and module. We also include many Shaw Academy reviews from students past and present to give you a good idea of what to expect.
