Distance Learning Option

In addition to attendance at course lectures at our Charterhouse Square venue we also offer a Distance Learning alternative for those who cannot attend lectures.

To our distance learning students we offer the full lecture with documentation on line which will remain accessible until the date of the Diploma examination following the course. In order to assess that students are accessing the teaching material we also set a number of short questions from time to time relevant to each lecture. These questions are not assessed for the Diploma examination, but their purpose is to ensure engagement of the students. We also encourage the students to post questions to us on course site forum which will be answered by the relevant lecturers.

Satisfactory completion of the course (attendance of at least 80% of the course) will lead to the award of a Certificate of Attendance. Candidates may then wish to sit for the examination leading to the award of Diploma Course in Forensic Human Identification.
