Programme Overview

The Discovering Carmel Certificate programme is a level 5 undergraduate programme offering a foundation in various aspects of Carmelite Studies. This initial level programme will introduce
students to the Carmelite spirituality, heritage and culture.
The Discovering Carmel Certificate programme is designed for individuals:

  • who are looking for a short ‘taster’ programme in Carmelite Studies or
  • who wish to study the Carmelite tradition for the first time or
  • who wish to acquire Certificate-level qualification in Carmelite Studies (level 5)

The programme is designed for those who want to continue working while studying, or for someone who may not have easy access to one of the traditional education providers, or who may not have
the time to commute to and from lectures daily. We also welcome students who want to study the programme full-time, which allows students to complete the programme in a much shorter timeframe.
The programme offers students the opportunity to read and study individual modules at their own pace in a structured yet flexible approach on a part-time or full-time basis.

Programme Structure

The programme offers students the opportunity to read and study individual modules which are made available during semester periods only and, normally students register for more than one
module in a semester. It generally takes six weeks to complete a module. There are four entry points to the programme: two in semester one and two in semester two.
The academic year is measured in two twelve week semesters:

  • Semester 1: September – December
  • Semester 2: January – April.

The programme is delivered in the form of a phased release of reading material made available
through the CIBI website.

Assessment
