ICATS Distance Learning
In distance learning the normal university approach of lectures, tutorials and workshops are replaced with reading and activities.The approach has proved its worth over 30 years.
All the necessary materials are included in the learning pack (ICATS module workbooks on CDs, textbooks, monographs, aroma reference standards, smelling strips and IFEAT expert papers).
There is a lot of flexibility. There is no fixed exam at the end of the academic year or fixed hand in dates for assignments. Students can work through the material at their own pace.
Modules are assessed by Tutor marked assignment reports and a final dissertation submitted to the IFEAT External Examiner.
Support is provided throughout study by Personal Tutors who are only an email away from students.
The foundation module of this programme covers the basic science and mathematics needed in the Aroma Trades. This provides the necessary underpinning for those without a technical background and a refresher for those with science qualifications.
