Block release mode of delivery has several advantages to both students and employers of students (and potential students).
This mode of delivery will have students in the classroom for a compulsory lecturing block of three days per module. Two modules will be offered per trimester and the lecturing blocks of the two modules will run back-to-back, meaning six consecutive days per trimester, if registered for both modules.
The first trimester will run from January to April, the second trimester from May to August and the third from September to November.
The lecturing blocks will be late March (for first trimester modules), late July (for second trimester modules) and late October (for third trimester modules). It will be compulsory to attend the three-day lecturing block for a module to be allowed to write the respective examination. Exact dates for lecturing blocks will be made available at the start of each module.
Module examinations will be written in April, August and November respectively. Depending on numbers and demand, examinations might be written at venues outside of Port Elizabeth.
Before and after lecturing blocks, students will be required to do preparation work and submit assignments that will form part of the admission mark that is required for access to the examination.
Over the last decade career and job opportunities in the IT governance domain have grown enormously. Information systems auditors, information security managers and IT risk managers are in huge demand, both locally and abroad.
