What does a typical day on a TMA course look like?
No day is the same on a TMA course, but all the class-based teaching is covered in the mornings. Afternoons are for assignments and work experience.

How do I know if a TMA course is for me?
Do any of these situations apply to you ?

  • Are you leaving school but don’t want to go to university?
  • Have you left university and are not sure what to do next?
  • Have you left university before you finished your course because it wasn’t living up to your expectations?
  • Are you in a job, but it is not quite the right job for you?

If this mirrors your situation and you are a natural people person, enthusiastic, proactive, and enjoy responsibility, it is likely that you will be suited to a TMA course.

What if I have the potential, but cannot afford the fees?
In exceptional circumstances students may apply for scholarships (funded by partnering employers) to cover some or all of the course fees.
