AACTD's structured independent study courses are open for  enrolment several times a month. Students will complete their courses in either 8 or 12 week terms. Students are free to manage their schedule within their term, with a minimum enrollment per term of four weeks. Supported by academic staff, undergraduate students will be required to complete a minimum of 15 credit hours (or 4-5 courses) over a 12-month period. Graduate students will be required to complete a minimum of 12 credit hours (or 3-4 courses) over a 12-month period.

Courses are specifically designed for ultimate outcome, and they:

  • Clearly state the course objectives.
  • Lead students through each course with directions on what to do next.
  • Contain lecture notes to explain difficult concepts.
  • Include self-tests and practice exercises to help students prepare for graded exams.
  • Use textbooks written by leading academic and industry experts to form the basis of each course.
  • IT-related courses include professional software so students learn on the same software used in the industry.
