|How to Apply|
The Flexible Learning Center (FLC) enables Divine Word University to present innovative and alternative programs to people in the workplace, or to people unable to undertake full time study opportunities. The major presentation of programs in the Flexible Learning Center takes place by provision of distance education programs.
All FLC Diplomas are offered over a 2-year duration consisting of four, six monthly semesters. Certificate programs are offered over two semesters (one year) with the exception of the Certificate in Work Place Training and Development that is offered over one semester. At the commencement of each semester students are required to attend a 2-week residential study school to introduce the modules/units that are to be offered throughout the semester. The term module refers to the individual units presented throughout the program. Participative workshops, lectures and assessment criteria are discussed and all the necessary learning guides are distributed. Students are given study guides for each module and suggested submission dates to assist in their own time management. In addition, students develop their own professional networks with fellow students, resulting in informal study groups.
To enrol in the FLC Diploma Certificate programs the pre-requisite requires all students to be employed. This is necessary due to the nature of each assessment, all being directly related to your work environment and linked to work-based issues.
The FLC offers several intakes per year however students are required to lodge their application one-month prior to the commencement of their respective program.
Students who possess substantial experience and/or previously gained qualifications in certain areas offered in their program can apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). This process must be lodged prior to program commencement. Application forms and RPL forms can be obtained from the FLC office.
All students who successfully graduate from the Diploma of Management and the Diploma of Human Resource Management will have the opportunity to receive credits toward a Management Degree. In addition, Management students can obtain a double qualification by completing the Human Resource Management electives.
The Diploma of Women and Men in Public Sector Management provides students with a gradual progression. Upon the successful completion of the first two semesters, participants will be awarded a Certificate of Women and Men in Public Sector Supervision. After the successful completion of the four semesters the Diploma of Women and Men in Public Sector Management will be awarded.
