Completing Your Diploma Assignments

As part of your Diploma Course, you will need to complete your distance learning assignments. The assignments will help you prepare for the final exams. Each module in your course requires you to complete two assignments and an internal exam. All assignments should be submitted before your exam. 

Your Diploma Exam

When you have submitted all your assignments, you will be eligible to register for the external diploma exam. There is only one exam at the end of your course. It makes up 75% of your final mark. The other 25% is made up of your assignments and internal exams. 

Diploma vs National Diploma – What’s the Difference?

They’re the same thing right? Well not quite. Although there are similarities, there are a few differences between a diploma and national diploma. These includes:

  • Duration – A diploma course can be studied between 1-2 years, depending on the programme. A National Diploma Course takes at least 3 years to complete.
  • Level of your qualification – Although they both have their own merit, a national diploma is at a higher level as opposed to a diploma. It  also offers opportunities for higher learning. 

Skills You’ll Learn by Studying Diploma Courses With us

Each of our Diploma Courses offers their own set of skills. But the learning doesn’t end there. As a distance learning student, you will be able to upgrade your soft skills as well. Some of the many soft skills you’ll learn are as follows:

  • Time Management Skills – With us, you can study at your own pace. This means you will be responsible for your own schedule. This will help plan your studies and prioritise your work accordingly.

  • Communication Skills – There are no classes when you study with us. You will communicate through emails and telephonically. Use this to your advantage. It prepares you for communicating with colleagues and clients.

  • Independence – Being a great team player is good. Yet you need to know to work independently too. Distance learning teaches you how to take initiative and complete work on your own.

  • Improved Creativity – Take your creativity up a notch with us. This will help you create unique solutions to problems and out-of-the-box ideas.
