How Does Online Learning Work?

Image of ICI Open Learning Courses - Australia / Worldwide• Online learning gives you the advantage of being able to study from home or workplace from any location worldwide. 

• You also have the freedom to study at times that best suit you, and schedule your study around your work or family commitments.

• Because ICI offers regular intake dates, you can start a course at any time of the year. Once you have enroled online or on the phone with an enrolment adviser, you can begin your studies at a time that suits you.

• After enrolment, you will receive a welcome email and letter with instructions on how to login into your course, and how to access your course materials and tutorial support. Your courses are divided into modules with assessments at the end of these modules.

• Your assessments (written assignments) are based on the material you have learned in the module. You will not have to take any exams.

Tutor Support:
• Your assignments will be marked by your tutor, who will give you feedback on all written assignments, ensuring you are on the right track and motivated to achieve your goals.

• Even though you are studying at home, you are never alone as your highly qualified tutor is able to guide you through the exercises and answer your questions.

How long will my course take?
• Complete your course as quickly or as slowly as you like. With ICI, you set your own pace. If you study for an hour each day, you can complete our courses in less than a year.
