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 courses run over 3 semesters(trimester) per year and new students are able to enrol at any of these 3 start dates. Trimesters have an average duration of about 14 weeks with two modules offered sequentially in a trimester. Students will have a number of activities and tasks to be completed and a live lecture weekly. A formative assessment (exam) needs to be completed on Campus at the end of each Trimester which concludes the module. Students will have a 1 week break between Trimesters to recharge.

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.

Available start dates:

2020 – 27 Jan, 18 May, 31 August
2021 – 25 Jan, 17 May, 30 Aug
2022 – 31 Jan, 23 May, 5 Sept
