This programme is delivered fully online. Watch our video to see what online study with Open Polytechnic is like.

Qualification Structure

You must complete all the courses listed below to gain this qualification.

Workload 

The study workload for each course is approximately 10 - 13 hours per week. Courses have a 20-week enrolment period, which includes 16 weeks for learning and assessments, and four additional weeks if more time is needed. For each course you will generally need to complete an assessment every five weeks. 

Enrolment options

You can enrol on one, two, three or four courses at a time. Typically, learners enrol into one or two courses at a time to ensure a more manageable study workload.  

If you study one or two courses at a time you can progress as fast as you like through your study then let us know when you're ready to enrol in the next course/s.

Studying all four courses at once:

  • This will be a workload of around 40 hours of study a week, which may be higher when assessments are due.
  • We recommend you only do this if you need to apply for a Student Loan with Student Allowance, Living Costs or Course Related Costs.
  • If you are working fulltime or have other fulltime commitments, we recommend studying one or two courses at a time.
