There’s a popular myth that part-time online study equals lonely study. However, at Pearson Institute of Higher Education, we’ve busted this myth by creating our unique Virtual Learning Environment.

Even though you’ll be studying in your own time and space, we provide you with on-going support and motivation to ensure that you meet your goals and objectives.

This includes:
– Regular communication with our trained consultants
– Lecture communications and success-focused support
– Small group discussions on online forums
– A direct line of contact with your designated lecturer
– A live weekly lecture – online or on campus

Our Course is delivered over 3 Semesters (Trimesters) per year. And with 4 enrolment start dates per year it is easy for you to start your academic journey with us.

A Trimester has an average duration of about 14 weeks with two modules delivered sequentially allowing our students to focus on successfully completing one module at a time. Students will have a number of activities and task to be completed weekly keeping you progressing through the course supported by a live lecture weekly to consolidate your learning.

A formative assessment (exam) needs to be completed on Campus at the end of each module. And a small break between Trimesters will help you recharge and ready you for the next trimester.

Part time programme will take a student longer to complete due to the nature of the delivery. Typically, a part time programme will take a student 18 months to complete a level and about 5 years to complete all three levels while working.
