Help choosing your course


The right course for me?

Choosing the right course can be difficult, however consider some of the following to check if the course meets your needs:

-  think about your interests and strengths                 

-  review the course content and method of delivery

-  contact the course coordinator for further details

-  make your decision on the balance of information available

Many of our courses have a certificate option after one year’s study or a diploma option after two, so you do have exit options (with an academic award) if you wish to change your course of study or finish your studies prematurely.
