The University’s online learning management system will support face to face teaching but students will be required to attend classes on-campus.

Currently classes are planned to take place on the UL campus Wednesday evenings from 6-10pm beginning Sept 8th with induction before this and there will be a small number of weekends.

Applicants are required to have a minimum of two years work experience with at least six months supervisory experience. Applicants are required to complete a recognition of Prior Learning portfolio containing evidence of the requisite prior learning.
