WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Each study package lists the topics you are about to study. This will give you something to aim at. What you will learn depends on how well you study: the more you put in, the more rewarding it will be.

 

HOW WILL I LEARN?

All the information you need to learn is delivered to you within this learning package.

 

WHAT WILL I HAVE TO DO?

As you work through the learning package you will find activities to help you check that you are really learning.

 

WHEN SHOULD I LEARN?

You choose the time to learn; you choose when you start and you decide how much time you wish to devote.

 

WHEN CAN I START?

You've already started!

Planning your learning is a vital step towards you successfully completing your studies. Unlike conventional courses, distance learning is not tied to the academic terms. This means that you can start to study any time you wish. Students will be enrolling at any time of the year and will study at their own pace until they complete their course. Our administrative facilities have been set up to deal with this flexible study.

 

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

How long your course takes to complete is essentially up to you. The system is very flexible in that you can decide how much time you are prepared to devote to studying.

 

WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF IT?

The College will issue a certificate to all successful students for each course. Success in your course will be judged on your performance of the course assessments, once you have successfully passed the course assessments you should then be ready for the MCA examination.
