What can I expect from the course?

The part-time course is still intense but less demanding. We suggest this solution to those who have some other commitments or need some more time to study.You can expect to follow a basic daily routine: Teaching practice, feedback time, input sessions and guided lesson planning.
Please note that you’ll also need the evenings and weekends to work on your assignments and lesson plans. Read our graduate testimonials to get a first hand account of what to expect from the course.
