Support and delivery

Set your own timetable

Designed for maximum flexibility, this degree allows you to study anytime, anywhere.

There are 3 teaching periods a year, and you can enrol in 1 to 4 units every period.

On average, for a single unit, you should allow for approximately 8 - 10 hours of active learning each week. Active learning includes engaging with learning materials and activities, interaction with other students, readings and assessment tasks.

Depending on your study load, you can finish your degree in as little as 3 years.

Possible study loads

You can study full time, part time, or at an accelerated pace. You can adjust your study load each teaching period, so you can fit study into your schedule around family, work, or other commitments.

There are study breaks between teaching periods and over Christmas / New Year so you can take time out during your course.

Your course content is supplemented by online communication technologies such as discussion boards, chat sessions, email and blogs.
