Step 2: Work out your current commitments

Many of our programmes are designed to enable learners to study while working full time. It is important that you understand your study commitments prior to enrolling into a programme. A credit is equivalent to 10 hours of study so a 120-credit programme will need 1200 hours of study.

Typically for a full-time programme you need to allocate 30 to 40 hours a week of study including classes, assessments, work placement or practical learning. For a part-time programme, you need to allocate 15 to 20 hours a week of study for the same.

Prior to commencing study, it is important for you to work out your current commitments and decide if you can commit time to study for the duration of your programme.

There are multiple ways you can fund your studies. You might be eligible for fees free scheme, scholarships, student loans and allowances. Easiest way is to contact our team and they can guide you through the options.
