Even though you are in the comfort of your own home, you can enjoy the benefits of interaction with your teacher and fellow students. You can see your lecturer, Professor Vaidya Ajit (B.A.M.S, P.C.A.S) and listen to him demonstrate and lecture while you underline your class notes and participate in class discussion, just as you would in any classroom setting.

On Campus Lectures:

Aspects of the course are delivered in a classroom setting, requiring on campus attendance of 11 hours per week. These hours, combined with the weekly webinars and on campus training workshops, meet the contact hours required for international students.

Weekend Seminars:

Your lecturer, Professor Vaidya Ajit (B.A.M.S, P.C.A.S), will personally lead several weekend seminars and practical training workshops at our Brisbane Campus, (121 Mains Rd, Sunnybank) to delivery and assess the practical components of the qualification.

These weekends are a vital component of the course, where you will learn to apply the knowledge delivered through your webinars.

Because of the way the me builds on the knowledge taught over these weekends, you must attend each of these workshops.

Missing one of these weekends will mean you will not be able to complete the qualification in your current enrolment. In such cases, you would need to withdraw from your course of study and seek re-enrolment in a later program.

For this reason, the Institute recommends students plan carefully before committing to study to ensure they can complete their qualification in the required time-frame.
