Structure of our programs
The flexible learning program utilizes blended teaching and learning strategies. Students are required to attend an intensive two week residential period per semester ensued by a distance mode of study. Theoretical directed and practical assignments relating to workplace applications are then completed by the students in given periods of time. These assignments are then submitted for marking via email to the lecturers and copied to the Assistant to the Registrar which means students can be anywhere in the world and submit assignments as per the due dates set by the unit lecturer.
