The cost of each 5 credit unit is currently under review with a decision to be announced shortly.
On completion of each unit (pass/fail) based on activities set throughout the week’s , you will receive a certificate.
On completion of the 4th unit in the suite, you will be required to undertake a written assignment, but will be issued with a certificate from the University and be awarded a grade, and 20 credits of HE.
