All of your project work, discussions, assessments and assignments take place in an online environment. The classroom is always open and you don’t need to synchronise your study with anyone else. You can study whenever and wherever you want without compromising your work and personal commitments.”

Depending on the qualification, the courses can be completed in as little as 3 months and students get access to podcasts, workbooks, workshops and synchronous assessments, as well as 24/7 access to the Institute of Leadership and Management resources centre which contains CD-ROM material, publications, e-journals and book loans.
