What to expect:

The citrus genus varies widely in respect to the variety of species and fruit types within it, popular ones being cumquats, limes, lemons, oranges, mandarins and less common fruits like buddha’s hand, pomelos, finger limes and the japanese yuzu. They earn their place in your backyard with divine white scented blooms and winter fruits that help combat colds with their high Vitamin C content. The distinctive glossy green foliage and attractive fragrances of leaves, fruit and flowers add to the charm and make citrus highly sought after and widely grown by both commercial producers and enthusiasts.

How does it work?

At the end of each lesson, you will be given a short interactive test to undertake, which will provide an indication of how your learning is progressing. Upon completing the very last lesson, you will be offered a more thorough automated test or examination. This final assessment can be undertaken at any time of day or night; and any day of the week; and if you achieve an overall pass (60% or more); you will be able to obtain a “certificate of completion” with your name and completion date on it.

Note: these short courses are self-guided online courses and are not to be confused with our tutor-supported online courses.

Study with us is self-paced so that should generally be fine. But if you’ll be taking a few months off, it is best to contact Student Services so we can put your account on hold.  We allow a one-time course suspension (free of charge) of up to 6 months, depending on the student’s course end date.

We accept enrolments all year round, thus our motto “Anytime, Anywhere”. Students can start their course upon enrolment or put it off at a later date. However, please do note that the courses have set end dates. If you’re starting at a later date, please let us know.

Generally for the short courses we do not offer payment plans.  Please contact us directly if you need other options.

Yes this course is self paced.  Work at your speed through the material.  We have found students do best when submitting only one assignment at a time and waiting for feedback before submitting the next.
