There are no set timings for completing these modules, but we recommend that you allow yourself a minimum of 2-3 hours for each.
To allow time to think and reflect, we’d suggest working through one module per week. Or you may prefer to do the course more intensively, blocking out all other distractions for several days at once.
However you choose to approach it, by the end of the course you should have created a compelling creative business plan, narrative and pitch. We really look forward to seeing where you choose to take it.
