Design Your Own Course

Can't find the certificate/diploma your looking for? Not all educational institutions certificates/diplomas meet everyone's needs. The opportunity to design your own certificate / diploma at ADL  (subject to our  approval) is an added bonus not found at other colleges. It's a very popular option and widely used by many students. You can choose any combination  of subjects offered within the guidelines.

Some major advantages of designing your own certificate / diploma include:

  • A qualification that is more focused to your needs and goals can be a distinct advantage over your competition in business or the workplace.
  • Employers are usually impressed by qualifications that are up-to-date, unique and relevant to their industry.
  • You avoid studying subjects which are irrelevant or less relevant to you.
  • Obtain an education which is different to most people you are likely to encounter in your working life. 


ADL offers two ways to complete certificates and higher qualifications:

  1. Enrol in a standard online course, individual module, certificate or diploma. The structure of these courses and programs is fully laid down, and students may only need to elect a major area of study. Standard courses are listed throughout the website and handbook.
     
  2. Design your own Certificate/Diploma. This gives students who have a very specific goal in mind the flexibility to put together a program that meets their needs.

    ​Details on designing your course are as follows:
  • You may choose any combination of subjects offered within the guidelines and discipline of choice. You can start out with one module first, then add other modules as you progress. When enroling it is not necessary to decide up front what modules you wish to be committed to. We recommend students make a committment as to what modules they wish to further undertake, at the end of the completion of the first module - this will of course be subject to approval.

Students who are unsure as to which modules to choose, should seek first the advice and guidance of our academic staff.

Hello
 
I am interested in designing my own qualification and would like approval for the following modules:
 
Suggested title:         Agricultural Management
Qualification:              Advanced Certificate
Learning Method:       Correspondence
 
Category (Disciplines):          Agriculture and Business Management
Modules:                                
  • Poultry                                                
  • Farm Management                                                 
  • Animal Health Care

My reason for  choosing these modules:
I wish to have a better understanding of how to manage a small poultry farm for commercial purposes.
 
My purpose for studying this qualification:
I am hoping to purchase a small poultry farm in the future.  My background and knowledge of commercial poultry production is very limited and this qualification would help me get started as well as help me to market the sale of my poultry. 
 
I look forward to hearing from your academic staff.
 
Regards
