The Certificate courses generally require 100 hours of class contact over a one-year period while the Diploma in Arts courses are offered over a two-year period. Classes are of up to three hours duration and some courses are conducted over weekends.
The part-time Degree progammes allow students a great deal of flexibility as to the pace at which they wish to progress and the resulting attendance required each semester. In general, students undertaking the maximum load will attend for two full evenings a week in each of two 12-week semesters. In addition, students may choose to take a summer module (intensive one-week full-time).
The postgraduate programmes will generally be offered intensively over full day sessions, normally 8 days per semester (Fridays/Saturdays)
