Your course has a set duration starting from the date of enrolment (which is the date you receive the confirmation of enrolment email). You are required to complete the course within this time period.

If you have trouble in meeting assessment deadlines and you’d like some more time, you can apply for an extension. If the extension is granted, you will be charged a rollover fee.

This Policy may vary for some government funded courses.

A copy of this agreement will be sent to you for your records.
