What is the difference between your Part Time and your Full Time courses?
The Part Time courses are Modular Based, and run for 4-5 weeks each, with one project per module. The Full Time courses are made up of various modules that run for 3 – 8 weeks each with more than one project per module.
How do I know which one to choose?
The Full Time courses are geared towards students who wish to commit to a much longer and more involved course, with an aim to get a Higher Certificate and a Portfolio. The Part Time courses are excellent for those who wish to add new skills to their existing skills, i.e. a Print Designer who wants to learn Web Design skills. The Part Time courses are also often chosen by those who wish to prepare to do longer courses, or individuals whose companies need them to learn skills to apply within the workplace immediately.
