Attendance is recorded for the workshops.
The workshops are taught entirely online with no onsite attendance required.

Students undertaking this option will need to devote 30 – 35 hours per week during the coursework component of the program. This program suits students who are looking for the quickest path to admission.
We recommend that students working full-time do not undertake the full-time option.
