Q.What enrollment options are available and which is the difference between them?
We offer two types of delivery: Online and Distance. Students can choose the one it suits the best.
Online delivery: we send to students by email a new module every Monday morning. They have one week to return the assignment to us by email. After we asses the assignments we send back a mark and feedback . Online enrollments start every first Monday of the year.
Distance delivery. In this system we send to students an usb stick or a link containing all the modules. Each module contains a learning component and assignment task, handouts, marking sheets (that shows the criteria students will be marked on) and examples from previous students. Once students finish all the assignments, they send them to us by email or mail and we asses them. Distance delivery students can start any time.
Students also can choose to take up Full time or Part time enrollment.
For full time enrollment students receive all the modules from a specific program.
For part time enrollment students can select from the modules we offer, the ones they think may complete their skill level. Part time enrollment is available on Online delivery only.
The course will run at your pace to suit your life style and commitments. Duration of the course depends on the option you choose:
-for full time Online or Distance, the course will take 14 weeks (18 weeks together with bathroom modules).
-for advance modules Online or Distance the course will take 10 weeks.
If you need to, you can take longer time to return the assignments. However, it is recommended to finish the course within 6 months from enrollment, in order to keep the momentum.
