No cramming for exams required

There are no exams in the program, only assessments.

Assessment methods may include reports, individual and group projects, video presentations, essays, reflective tasks, quizzes, or simulation-based assessments. Typically, there is one individual and one team assessment per unit, though this can vary from unit to unit.

Have choice in your studies each term

Ensuring you satisfy the study requirements, study order is largely up to you. When choosing from the available units each term, you may wish to consider how you want to professionally develop, while asking yourself which subject is going to be the most practical and useful for you at that time.

Overall, you are encouraged to draw on and use case studies/examples from your work environment or the area you are seeking further development in to assist yourself in putting theory into practice.
