Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long can I take to complete my course?

The courses are designed to be self-paced. For the Certificate Course, you would expect to be dedicating on average about 6-8 hours per week for 24 weeks. For the Diploma Course, you would expect to dedicate, as per AQF standards, approximately 16 hours per week of structured and non-structured training over an 18 month period. Students studying the Certificate Course are provided up to 12 months to complete their studies. Students studying the Diploma Course are provided up to 18 months to complete their studies.

How do I communicate with my tutor?

Your tutor's role is to assess your assignments and provide you with personalised feedback. They are also available to answer any questions you may have about your course. You can communicate with your personal tutor at any time through your secure student site, which you will be given access to once you enrol.

Do I have to attend any classes?

The courses are completed online. This means there are no classes to attend. You can study in your own time and at your own pace.

Do I have to have a background in photography?

No. The courses are designed to allow for students who have had little or no experience in photography.

What equipment do I need?

All you need for the Certificate course is a camera. A Digital SLR or Mirrorless (CSC) camera is best; but certainly not essential. We also recommend a recent version of Adobe Photoshop. However, you may use other photo editing programs.

To complete the first assignment of the Diploma course, you will require access to the following:

  • A 35mm DSLR or Mirrorless (CSC) equivalent that has detachable lenses and can have accessories attached to it.
  • A computer that is capable of running Adobe Software with a minimum of 16GBs of RAM.
  • Adobe Creative Cloud - Photographer’s package or stand-alone Lightroom and Photoshop programs.

To see a list of what is required to complete the entire Diploma course, please click here and view the EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS section.

Our courses are compatible with both PC and MAC computers, tablet and smartphone devices.

When can I start?

As the courses are provided online, you have the flexibility to start when and where suits you. If you enrolled today, for example, you could start straight away.
