Training Open days What time commitment is required? Postgraduate training must fit around your lifestyle, so identifying the mode of study that's right for you is essential. For example, part-time study can be ideal for students in full-time employment and/or with family commitments. Full-time work and part-time study is particularly popular with those who are self-funding their course or have received funding from their employer to study alongside their regular occupation. Students should expect to set aside time for study each week during term time and qualification takes longer (than a full-time course). Before applying, you should view the teaching schedule and determine whether you can commit to the schedule. Teaching can take place either during daytime or evening, with some course teaching taking place during the weekends.
