Flexible Learning
Students can take advantage of the College's flexible learning approaches by undertaking courses on a part-time basis.
You may take 1, or 2, or even 3 Modules at a time – depending on your wishes and your personal circumstances
Each module completed competently may be put towards whatever credential you eventually select. You do not have to repeat a module just because you decide to change your goal!
You can enrol in, and pay for each module separately.
Part-time usually means a student will attend two evenings per week, plus supervised practice clinics. The Certificate IV in Massage, for example, then takes about two years to complete. The time can be shortened, of course, by attending more subjects and attending Student Practice Clinics weekly.
