Most of our students are balancing their studies with other obligations, such as full- or part-time jobs, raising a family, caring duties, or simply living a busy life.
Fortunately, our courses are built to fit into your schedule. Since they are fully online and part-time, you can work on them during your lunch break, after the kids have gone to bed, or even from a beach on the other side of the planet (as long as that beach has an internet connection).
But how do you know if you’ll be able to fit studying into your schedule? Here are some suggestions.
When it comes to research, how much time can you set aside?
We suggest that students devote 15-20 hours per week to each module. Normally, you can study one module at a time, but some students prefer to double up on modules in order to finish their studies more quickly. If this is a choice for you, it will rely on the study choices you select, as well as a conversation with a Student Advisor to see if it is something you can handle.
Are there any obligations that must be met at specific times?
Unlike on-campus programmes, where lectures and workshops are scheduled at specific hours, almost all of our courses do not need synchronous attendance or mandatory meeting times. You will complete work when and when you like with these programmes as long as you meet your task deadlines.
When do you think you’ll be able to study?
Examining when you have time available to concentrate on your studies is one of the best ways to determine if beginning an online certification is the right option for you.
Do you, for example, have a long train or bus ride during which you might complete your assigned reading? Have you got some spare time in the evenings?
