About Self-Paced Learning
Upskilled wants to ensure that you get the best online learning experience, which is why we offer flexible and self-paced courses to suit your needs.
While online learning provides you with the flexibility of managing both your personal and work schedule, it's important to have a consistent approach so you don't fall behind.
We want to help you succeed, which is why all the courses delivered through Upskilled come with a training plan to help you stay on track.
On average, Upskilled students take approximately 13 months to finish a course.
Simply put, the more hours you dedicate to your course, the closer you'll be to the finish line.
How many hours per week should I dedicate to my course?
We recommend spending at least 12-15 hours per week of study in order to stay on track with your studies. Based on this range, it may take you up to 24 months to complete a diploma-level qualification.
How quickly you finish a course is also dependent on your existing skills and experience.
This is simply a guide to help you better understand how many hours you ideally need to spend on your studies. We understand that everyone approaches learning differently, but rest assured, you'll still have a great level of control in your learning.
