Extra courses might be organised during the year, depending on applications, so if you are raring to go send us an e-mail and we’ll tell you if you are in luck!! Check the STC Calendar for the exact starting date.
I want to join the degree programme but I will be unavailable for an extensive period of time during my studies?
The education programmes we offer are extremely flexible and modular in form. This means that generally speaking students can plan their own study time. If there is a particular event in your life, which requires a period of time where you will have to be absent from classes, talk to us (ideally much in advance!) and we will be able to guide you! In case, of unexpected circumstances students are able to apply for an extension which will then need to be approved.
