    Which prepositions are usable with "course"?

    Hello, everybody,

    which prepositions are usable with "course" ( class ) and what do they mean?
    Is it common to say "You have a place on my course"?

    Thank you in advance

    I have a place on the course.
    I have paid for the course.
    You will get a lot of reading material with this course.
    I emigrated to Australia shortly after the course.

    There's a few to get you started.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In the US, you'd be "in the course" to mean in a class, and "on the course" to mean you were running a long race (or cheering for those who were).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Or "on the course" playing golf.
