The course is specially designed for study by distance learning. You will learn online – instead of reading walls of text, you will watch videos and animations and do quizzes to check your understanding. You can learn either on a tablet or desktop. We also offer a mobile e-book based on this course that you can download to your phone or tablet and read it while waiting in a queue, on the train or during your lunch break. Throughout the course, there will be self-assessment questions, and tutor marked assignments (TMAs), to enable you to monitor your progress.
You have up to a year to complete this course and we have included a suggested number of study hours. This is usually ample time for learners, even with full-time jobs and other commitments. Don’t worry if you go over the year though, we can organise an extension to your course for an additional fee, which also extends your tutor support.
Throughout this course, you may be expected to complete assignments, essays, research projects, posters, leaflets, presentations, PowerPoint presentations, video/audio recordings, and practical learning sessions to meet the requirements of your course.
