There are typically two CQF online lectures each week which run from 6:00pm - 8:30pm (GMT). All lectures are delivered live via webcast and are fully interactive, so that you can ask questions. Lecture recordings are made available on the CQF Learning Portal within just 24 hours, giving you the freedom to watch and re-watch lectures at your convenience.
The CQF program runs over 6 months part-time, however we know how busy financial services professionals are and this is why the program has been designed to work around your life and commitments. In addition to all our lectures being held live, streamed live and recorded, you also have up to three full years to complete the CQF, giving you flexibility to study at your own pace.
Independent Reading and Assignments
In addition to you following lectures it is important to practice and use the skills you have learned. This is why CQF lectures come with optional practice exercises which enable you to immediately implement these skills.
You’ll spend your time implementing models, reading your textbooks, getting support from faculty and working on your exams. Your exams are open-book assignments that give you the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned, and give our faculty the ability to assess your progress. The typical time commitment for delegates who complete the CQF in a six-month cohort is 10 - 15 hours per week in addition to the lectures.
There are two CQF intakes each year – each intake starting in January or June.
