Some of our students choose to complete their diploma requirements over many years, while some may wish to complete it within one year. A one year timeframe is extremely ambitious for someone who is also working full time. For those who wish to fast-track a diploma, we strongly suggest that students take no more than 3 courses in one semester. 

Depending on the course, you can expect to spend between at least 6 - 10 hours per week for each course, and sometimes more depending on the depths you wish to research certain topics.

Here are some diploma course completion timeframe possibilities. Click to expand and review: 



Student Comment

"I just wanted to say how much I appreciate still having access to class materials. It's been very useful, and a luxury compared to most post-secondary institutions. I really appreciate it! I think this should serve as real incentive for potential Gaia students, especially those that know the restrictions and inaccessibility of post-secondary course materials after graduation, because your student account is deactivated or you had to sell your texts. We get a lot for our course fee with Gaia. All the best, and keep up the good work."
