    Goed om weten over deze cursus Creative Writing

    Can I follow this course without any previous experience or knowledge?
    Yes. You can start from zero. The course begins with a clear introduction on the subject. Only when a course has 'advanced' or 'expert' in its title will you need some previous knowledge.
    When can I start studying?
    You start your home study course whenever you want. You can already start studying within the same day of signing up. The printed course will be sent immediately to you by post. It will be in your mail box before you know it.
    Why choose a home study course?
    One word. Flexibility. The flexibility to study anytime and anywhere you want, especially with our digital course that you can access on all your devices: desktop, laptop, tablet and smartphone. You're entirely in charge of your learning pace so you can easily combine your studies with other things in your life. If you want to take the exam and get a diploma to add to your resume, you have a period of five years to take an exam with us.
    How do I sign up for a course?
    You sign up by filling in our registration form and making a payment for the course you want. After this we will send you a confirmation mail with practical information such as your log-in details for our online student platform.
    What will I get?
    You will receive a state of the art course in a sturdy binder and access to a digital version of the course on your account on our student platform.

    Where and when can I take my exam?
    When you have studied your course you're free to take an exam at one of our exam locations in Belgium and the Netherlands. Impossible to get there? Do you live further away? We'll make arrangements to set up an online examination for you. If you score at least 60% on your exam then you pass and will receive your Creative Writing diploma by post.

    What if I live in Belgium and want to start my own business as a self-employed person?
    If you want to start your own independent business in Belgium, you also need a certificate of business management ('attest bedrijfsbeheer' in Dutch).

UPDATE: starting from 1 September 2018 you can directly obtain your business management certificate online at our school! No need to go to Brussels anymore!
    Is this a purely theoretical course?

    How long will it take me to complete this course?
    Most students take about 6 to 9 months to finish a course, however, this is completely up to you. You can study at your own pace. You get 1 year of teacher’s guidance and 5 years to complete the exam.
