You can defer for up to six programs including the program you initially applied to.
No, there is no fee to defer.
The majority of delegates complete the CQF in six months. However it is possible for delegates to defer their completion of the CQF to the next program.
The examined core part of the course is six months long, but this is only part of the CQF package. Before the CQF starts there is the Mathematics Primer, and after a delegate has passed their exams and completed the project there is a huge library of Alumni Lectures as part of Lifelong Learning for CQF Alumni.
The CQF can be completed online at your own convenience and is designed to be flexible around your working day.
The course is delivered twice a year, commencing in January and in June.
