How long study takes
The minimum time to complete this qualification is seven months and must be completed within 13 months to meet the requirements of the regulatory bodies.
The expected total study time is 600 hours, which will include:
- four separate days of face-to-face activities (due to the ongoing pandemic, we may replace face-to-face events with an online alternative)
- four days equivalent of synchronous online forum-based activities (15 x 2 hour sessions)
- 18 days online study activities
- 90 hours of supervised, in-practice learning
- 315 hours of self-directed learning
Prior learning, experience and clinical exposure will help with the self-directed learning portion, so you may find that you require fewer self-directed hours than that specified here. This is perfectly admissible but a pass in all summative assessments must be achieved in order to be awarded a pass in the overall module/qualification.
