"A hundred years from now, it will not matter what
kind of car I drove, what kind of house I lived in,
how much money I had in the bank...but the world
may be a better place because I made a
difference in the life of a child.”

Part-time and Leave from Study
•
•
•
•
•
The course can be completed as a part-time
student.
This takes much longer and is problematic due to
the professional experience.
All curriculum studies topics must be completed
prior to professional experience.
Part-time students are advised to seek academic
counselling.
Students must complete a minimum of one topic
in semester 1 before applying for leave for up to a
year.
