How long will it take?
This qualification is made up of four courses. Each course is delivered over 10 weeks. NZQA guidelines suggest up to 150 hours of total study time for a 15 credit course.

If you want to study as a full-time student you can enrol on more than one course at a time, which will increase the amount of study required per week.
