Returning to study is a big decision, there are many things to consider. One of which is how affordable the course options are and how you will manage your payments.
Our core course offers 3 qualiﬁcations, with routes to 2 Accredited Registers. With ﬂexible payment options available, we are conﬁdent that our fees are extremely affordable and manageable regardless of your ﬁnancial situation. Studying with Chrysalis can lead to earning potential in a new career within a year.
Studying for just 1 year on our Level 3 Counselling & Hypnotherapy Skills certiﬁcate will provide you with a route to the National Hypnotherapy Society's Accredited Register to start practicing as a Hypnotherapist. If you wish to further your qualiﬁcation into Counselling you are able to do this alongside practicing as a Hypnotherapist, using your income to help you further fund your study.
Our courses are all part-time, attendance only being required one Saturday or Sunday per month between 10am and 5pm. This means that all other study is home study, set at an average of 8 hours per week. This approach to study enables you to maintain employment and study with us simultaneously. This structure has been set up to help create a more realistic ﬁnancially viable solution to returning to study.
As part of your course fees you will have access to study on the Chrysalis Moodle VLE (Virtual Learning Environment), this will allow you to study when convenient to you as well as giving you access to short study skills courses free of charge. Examples of our study skills include, How to write an essay, How to write a learning journal and How to prepare for studying.
We have ﬂexible payment plans set up so you can make monthly manageable instalments throughout the duration of your study. You also have the option to discuss with the team your ﬁnancial situation and for us to adapt our payment plans to ﬁnd the most suitable option for you. We want to help support all potential students achieve their dream of returning to study, without fearing ﬁnancial obstacles. We are here to support and guide you through.
Chrysalis Courses are not currently registered for Government Funding. This means that all potential students will need to be able to self fund our courses.
If you are unable to personally fund the course, you could look to secure a bank loan. Chrysalis will happily provide a Covering Letter to help support your loan application.
Any payment queries can be discussed with your Course Interviewer at Interview.
