Integrated course simply means a full time student, its more of a university style. A Modular course is more of a flexible course since its a part time kinda thing, but you’ll be restricted with few things such as issuing your PPL first where this isn’t a requirement when it comes to an integrated course, it mainly depends on you and how flexible you are, if you have a job i would recommend a modular since your course can be tailored according to you. But if your free, I would personally recommend an integrated course since you won’t be on your own, this course will be more of a university style as mentioned before, obviously things will be easier for you to absorb.
