Training Course Dates and Times

The full-time course is based on the STAT guidelines of 533 class hours per year for three years, 1600 hours in total, plus at least 8 hours of home study each week. In practice, we will usually aim to make 560 class hours available for students each year. Students are also free to study part-time on a schedule of their own choosing.

The course consists of two 12-week terms and one 11-week and each year (making a total of 35 weeks), with each term divided by a half term week.
