New year, new courses!

Updates to the member’s area

In keeping with the theme of “new”, we’ve made updates to the member’s area and created a new, in-house Assignments tab. Here, students will find all of their assignments, scores, grades and e-certificates in one place so it is easier to keep track of how you’re progressing throughout your studies. The marking scheme is broken down as follows:

  • 85-100% Distinction
  • 70-84% Merit
  • 50-69% Pass
  • <50% Fail

Alongside this, there are a number of other features coming soon, such as a better student timetable, a new browse area and a whole new Discover section so keep your eyes peeled for the new and improved member’s area.

Refer a Friend in Europe

Last month, we highlighted the launch of our new referral system that was rolled out across the US. Now, we’re happy to say that Refer a Friend is available for students in Europe too. Get €/£/$20 every time you successfully refer a friend to Shaw Academy, and your friend will also receive €/£/$20 in credits once they have signed up for a course. And the best part? You can invite as many friends as you want and earn unlimited credits. These credits can then be redeemed against course materials and e-certificates to showcase your success.

Lastly, we want to wish all of our students a very happy new year and thank you for your support. We can’t wait to share all that we have in store for 2021.
