ANDREW: Excuse me, I was told to come here for advice about, erm, Management Diploma courses?
MONICA: Youve certainly come to the right place. Hi, my name is Monica.
ANDREW: Nice to meet you. My name is Andrew, Andrew Harris.
MONICA: So, Andrew, have you seen our diploma course prospectus yet?
ANDREW: Yes, Ive already looked at it. In fact, I thought the information on course content was really useful, but Im afraid Im a bit confused by all the different ways you can do the course: full-time intensive, part-time and so on.
MONICA: Well, lets see if I can help. I think each course type has its advantages and disadvantages, so it really depends on you - your own study habits, and your financial circumstances, of course. Are you working at the moment?
ANDREW: Yes. Ive been working in the administration section of the local hospital for the last three years. And before that I worked in the office of a computer engineering company for two years. So, Ive got about five years of relevant work experience. And what Im hoping to focus on is Personnel Management.
MONICA: I see. And are you planning to leave your current job to study, or are you thinking about just taking a year off?
ANDREW: I want to know what my options are, really. I dont want to quit my job or anything and my employers are keen for me to get some more qualifications but obviously, it would be better if I could do a course without taking too much time away from work.
MONICA: Right, so you dont really want to do the full-time course, then?
ANDREW: No, not really. Its also a question of finances. You see, my office have agreed to pay the cost of the Course itself, but I would have to take unpaid leave if I want to study full-time and, well, I dont think I could afford to support myself with no salary for a whole year.
MONICA: OK. Well, you have two other possibilities: you could either do the part-time course- that would be over two years and you wouldnt have to take any time off work - or you could do what we call a modular course. You could do that in eighteen months if you wanted - or longer, its quite flexible and it would be up to you.
ANDREW: Mmm. So what does the part-time course involve?
MONICA: For that you would join an evening class and have a lecture twice a week. Then, youd have to attend a seminar or discussion workshop one weekend a month.
ANDREW: What kind of coursework would I have to do?
MONICA: Well, its a mixture. Youd be expected to write an essay each month, which counts towards your final assessment. You have a case study to do by the end of the course, which might involve doing a survey or something like that, and also you need to hand in a short report every four weeks.
ANDREW: So, thats quite a lot of work, then, on top of working every day. It sounds like a lot of studying - and really tiring.
MONICA: Yes, you certainly wouldnt have much free time!
ANDREW: What about the modular course? What would I have to do for that?
MONICA: Thats where you get the opportunity to study full-time for short periods. That way you can cover a lot of coursework and attend lectures and seminars during the day. And each module lasts for one term, say, about twelve weeks at a time. There are obvious advantages in this - the main one being that you can study in a much more intensive way, which suits some people much better.
ANDREW: And how many of these modules would I have to do to get the diploma?
MONICA: The current programme is two modules - and then you have to choose a topic to work in more depth - but you can base that on your job, and so you dont need to be away from the office, and how long it takes is up to you.
ANDREW: The important thing is that you dont have to study and work. You can focus on one thing at a time.
MONICA: Yes, I can see that. It certainly sounds attractive! It would be more expensive, though. I mean, Id have to support myself without pay for each module.
ANDREW: Thats true, so that might be a problem for you. Look, why dont you talk this over with your employers and ...
