Our experience suggests that actual hours of study to achieve the Advanced Diploma are lower where the student has relevant higher-level practical knowledge and experience. Suggested period of study: Deltic recognise the challenging (and rewarding) nature of this course, and that individual prior knowledge, learning style and personal circumstances, will all affect the overall time to be taken in completing this course. Nonetheless, generally we would advise students to sit the course over two examination sittings, giving a total period of study of around 12 months. It is important that the student recognises the greater breadth and depth of this course compared to the Diploma. Assessment method: 3-hour sat examination per Unit. Optional Work Project Report in place of Unit 5 Case Study paper.
