What’s The Price?
People frequently ask us why we don’t put the prices of our diploma programmes on our website.
The answer is that every student’s diploma is different!
While the prices for the individual modules are the same, your choices of “electives” plus any exemptions for existing skills will affect the total price of the diploma.
That’s why we urge potential students to have a chat with one of our expert Course Advisors who will be able to build a programme around their specific needs.
When you enquire don’t forget to ask about this month’s special diploma promotion!
