Study Mode:

Our programs are delivered face to face. We offer course materials and resources which you can access online to enhance your learning. These online resources are designed to enhance the outcomes of your face to face learning: they are not a substitute for face to face learning.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL):

RPL recognises your existing experience gained through life or work for which you may not have obtained a formal qualification. We will work with you to identify your existing skills, and assess if you can then achieve a full or part qualification. This also helps to avoid unnecessary duplication of training, saving you time and money.

Other Information:

Full-time study is mandatory for international students. This requires 3 days per week (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8.30 am to 4.15 pm). Depending on your circumstances, we can assist domestic students to study on a part-time basis. Part-time study is likely to extend the duration of the course beyond the duration listed at the top of this page.

Assessment Procedures:

This program has a variety of assessment methods including written, oral, practical role plays and simulated office environment assessments.
