The course information page doesn’t just tell you what’s in the course - it also tells you:
- Duration (how many weeks it’s likely to take to complete the course). For a free course, this is usually between 2 and 8 weeks.
- Time (how many study hours you should allow each week). This varies by course, but is usually about 3-4 hours.
- Learn (what type of course it is). Only Free and Sponsored courses have a free access period.
- Extra benefits (how much a single course upgrade costs). You can learn more about the extra benefits we offer here.
You can see all this information at the top of the course description page, underneath the main image header:
Every learner is different, and not everyone learns at the same pace. The Duration and Weekly study figures are an estimate and might not be completely accurate for every learner. If you think you might need more time, please factor this into your planning.
The free access period for a course is the Duration plus two weeks, to allow extra time for those who need a little more time or have had an interruption to their study.
