How is the program structured? Is it a full-time or part-time course?
What are the admission requirements for the program?

What is the teaching methodology for the program? Is it entirely online or are there any in-person components?
The course is blended. Whilst most of the course is online to allow for people who are working full time to enrol on the course, there are critical in-person components that have been scheduled at amenable times for workers, i.e., evenings and weekends.
Can you provide more details about the blended learning option? How much of the program is conducted online and how much is in-person?

Can you provide information about the faculty members who will be teaching the program?
Tutors and lecturers are recruited based on their knowledge, experience, and qualifications in relation to the subject they are teaching. Typically tutors will have at least one qualification higher than the subject level they are teaching and will have some relevant experience in that subject. Tutors are observed regularly, and Continuing Professional Development plays a significant role in their employment. Although some lecturers will be hourly paid, we also intend to have a team of full-time tutors to give students a sense of stability throughout their studies.
