We get it, time is precious.

We have a range of fully-online courses where you can undertake self-paced study, anytime, from anywhere. This way you can fit your study around your current lifestyle, without a lot of disruption to your work-life or family. It is a perfect way to prioritise your learning and work-life, your style.

How it works

You will engage with self-paced study which will involve working through online modules and reading materials. Some courses might also include online discussions where you can interact with other online learners and share your experiences. Some of our courses are delivered by our partner eCampusNZ.
