Do I need to attend exams?
No! ICI courses require you to be assessed via a variety of
project and written task methodologies through which learners demonstrate their knowledge and skills. Our competency based
assessments enables our learners to accurately demonstrate their
ability to comprehend and demonstrate skills rather than creating an
unnecessary “memory test” for learners.

Simply put the answer is NO. In order to receive your Certificate,
Diploma or Advanced Diploma, you must successfully complete all
units of work. There is no final examination as you would have

maximum time you have to complete a course is three years.
Extensions are available upon application.

You will receive an attractive certificate upon completion of
your course that you can show to friends, relatives and prospective
employers with pride. In addition to your certificate you will

How is distance learning
different from classroom-based courses?
- Studying by correspondence gives you greater flexibility.
International Career Institute students have the ability develop
their own learning schedule around current commitments.
Face-to-face based courses require students to attend class
dictated by a formal timetable.
- Most classroom-based educators require a minimum class
attendance rate of 80% in order for you to pass the course. As
there are no classes to attend when you study via
correspondence, you have the flexibility to go on holiday, study
while you earn, start a family or simply manage your time more
effectively around your commitments.
- There are no formalised timetables at International Career
Institute, which means you can complete your course around
full-time work. This eliminates any potential financial strain
and gives you more time to spend with your family and friends.
It also means you can complete your course in less time than
similar courses at other classroom-based institutions.
- Studying with the International Career Institute means no
classes to attend. This saves you time and money travelling to
and from class and gives you greater freedom to decide when and
where you want to study. Plus, you don’t have the hassle of
travelling to class on public transport or paying for parking.
Do I need to purchase expensive
No! All learning materials are contained in your course fees so
you know what you are paying for when you enrol. There is no need to
purchase expensive textbooks.
What if I can't afford to pay
for my course?
You can get started with low weekly or monthly instalments! You pay no
interest and still receive everything to complete your training.
