Post Graduate Studies Online
Professional Development Courses For Graduates
ADL offers an opportunity to obtain a post-graduate qualification through distance learning. Modules are selected from a wide range of courses offered by ADL allowing flexibility and self-paced learning.
Professional Development Courses for Graduates offered in a wide range of subjects – these may include wildlife management, wildlife conservation, psychology, counselling, writing, business, horticulture and much more. Our professional development courses are a flexible way to expand your own studies to a post-graduate level.
We offer two options –
- Post-Graduate Certificate
- Post-Graduate Diploma
Post Graduate Certificate
- A minimum of 3,000 hours in a recognised university will be acceptable.
- A degree or good level diploma.
- One year's experience in working in a relevant field to their qualification.
If you are unsure as to whether
Our Post Graduate Certificates require the completion of:
- Four modules, (choose courses with course codes of 200 and 300 but not 100 codes)
- Research Project IV module.
Example: Environmental Studies VEN100 would not be acceptable as a module, since the course code is 100. However, Environmental Assessment BEN301, would be appropriate as it is a 300 level course.
Post Graduate Diplomas
ADL’s Post Graduate Diplomas require the completion of the following:
- Post Graduate Certificate as above
- Plus an additional fifth module
- Dissertation of 10.000 - 15,000 words (course code BHT330).
Mentors and Support During The Course
We are here to help you as much as possible during the course. You will receive advice on the choice of your choice. Then when you enrol, you will be allocated a mentor who will work with you through the modules and your research project/dissertation.
