This is a full time, blended course. You will need to attend approximately 18 hours of class, over 3 days a week, for 16 weeks. As well as the in-class component, you will need to complete approximately 9.5 hours of other study per week.
You may also be required to complete approximately 10 hours of additional study each week outside of class hours. This course requires a high degree of self management of work. The independent part of your studies includes research, consuming news and other media content (social media, listening to the radio, watching video and TV), as well as making media content (writing scripts and articles, taking photos, recording audio and video).
NOTE: This course was normally face to face on campus, but recently has been run 100% online with teachers and student working from home, using interactive webinars. It has been very successful and popular that way! So whether we are back to normal life on campus, or still working from home, or a bit of both, you are sure to enjoy this highly social course and get the career potential that you are after.

SMART AND SKILLED FEES
This course is government-subsidised, meaning you pay a portion of the full course fee to TAFE NSW and the NSW Government will pay the balance. However, you must meet certain eligibility criteria for this to apply.
Depending on your previous qualifications and experience, your fee may be less than the maximum fee quoted. Your actual fee and eligibility for concession/exemption will be calculated and confirmed during the enrolment process.

PAYMENT OPTIONS AND ASSISTANCE
This course is approved for a Commonwealth VET Student Loan (VSL). If you meet the VSL eligibility and academic suitability requirements, you are able to apply to the Commonwealth for a loan to cover all or part of your course fee.

If you have previously accessed a loan via the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), either at TAFE or university, you will already have a CHESSN. You must use the same CHESSN whenever you access a student loan. If you dont have CHESSN, we will allocate one on your behalf.

- A copy of a certificate showing that you have been awarded a qualification at level 4 or above in the Australian Qualifications Framework (where the language of instruction was English).
