Our courses start at four times during the year: January, May, July, and September. Not every AQ course is offered in all sessions, so check the course information to find an available session that fits your schedule. Each course is approximately 4-10 weeks in length and is designed for full-time professionals to complete in evenings and on weekends.
The Additional Qualifications courses have high entrance requirements to ensure the quality of the cohort and the learning experience for all. Introductory AQ courses generally have lower admission requirements than specialist courses. Click on General Criteria below to check if you qualify for your specific program of interest.
