The most important part of your online AS Computer Science course (apart from you) is your dedicated tutor. All of our tutors have extensive academic experience and have all taught AS Computer Science in the classroom as well as online. You will be assigned a tutor as soon as you enrol on your course who will support you for 18 months during your studies. You can contact your tutor via email, skype or telephone with any questions.
