How much time should I dedicate to a course?

The time commitment is expected to be around 5 - 10 hours per week, depending on the program you choose and your prior level of experience.

The experience is virtual and mostly asynchronous, meaning you can work according to your own schedule.

Courses offered before 21st March 2024 also have fixed deadlines you need to meet in order to receive a certificate.

Are there any deadlines for course completion?

No, you no longer need to adhere to any deadlines for course completion.

However, it's important to note that all programs offered before 21st March still maintain their respective deadlines. Any programs offered after this date do not have deadlines. You have the flexibility to progress through the course at your own pace and complete it according to your schedule.

We’re confident you’ll love the program. But if you’re still on the fence, we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
