Program Delivery

The Graduate Certificate in Transforming Child Protection to Wellbeing is delivered online over nine months. 

Online learning

Online courses consist of assigned readings, synchronous or asynchronous lectures, interactive discussions, and individual and team assignments. You’re expected to meet deadlines and contribute meaningfully to your class. Your contributions are a big part of everyone’s learning. You’ll take one online course at a time for a period of nine weeks, followed by a two-week break. Each online course requires approximately 20 hours of work per week. You'll start your program with two non-credit, but required, courses. One introduces you to the online platform and one is about academic integrity.


Residencies are intensive and immersive. Many students say this time together is the highlight of their program.

During your residency, you can expect to:

  • attend classes full time (e.g., Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
  • complete homework and individual and team assignments outside of class hours
  • take part in extracurricular activities
