Hi Jenny, thanks for your question. In regards to the Graduate Diploma of Relationship Counselling, you are able to complete the practical workshops externally from home and of course the workbook units are on-line so this assessment is external as well. Our help and support will always be just a phone call or email away. Jenny just remember there is a field placement (100 hours) that is completed at the very end of the course so the ability to engage in the workplace at this time would be important. If you have further questions about this or any other questions you are most welcome to connect with me directly at our Brisbane Education and Support Centre on 07 38432772 or 1800353643, cheers, Rob Carrigan (Student Support)
