What you need to know before applying

When can I begin the course?
There are three intakes per year for each course: September, January, and May.

How much time do online modules take?
Online modules are designed to take the same amount of time as campus modules, and each runs for eight weeks.

Do I have to attend campus for some aspects of the online courses?
