How does it work?
The Academy course has 12 modules, and takes a year to complete. You can join at any time for access to all 12 modules, and receive access to all the content for 18 months. Each module is taught by an expert tutor, and you’ll also have access to peer-to-peer networking and discussions throughout the course.
Each module is structured across 4 weeks and includes video content, and interactive instructor session, reading material, exercises and an assessment. The modules combine guided and interactive learning, and are designed to be challenging whilst being flexible to fit your schedule.
Week 1 - Tutorials
3 hours of bitesize learning videos, delivered in 20 minute sessions. Studied at your own pace - with access to a background reading list and an archive of relevant AutoSens presentations.
Week 2 - Exercises
Coursework exercises, which will assess your learning from Week 1 and help prepare for the interactive session in Week 3.
Week 3 - Interaction
Instructor-led 4-hour interactive session. Breakout sessions with fellow tutees, with specific tasks relating to the module topic.
Week 4 - Review
Review your progress, network and discuss with your peers. End of module assessment and certification on successful completion.

The full cost of the course is £1999. Group/corporate rates are available, please contact us.
One module takes about 8 – 10h of time commitment.
Week 1: Watch videos and read recommended literature (2-3h).
Week 2: Do some exercises (2-3h).
Week 3: Attend live session (c. 4h).
Week 4: Wrap up, read more literature, provide feedback.
One live session of c. 4 hours will take place every four weeks. This will take place in the afternoon, European time.
We will promote the dates and times of the live sessions as far in advance as possible, however, we know that some sessions will be unavoidably missed. The live sessions will be recorded, so you will not miss out on the additional learning and it should not prevent you from completing the end of module quiz.
No, the course is intended for individual access only and if there are signs of misuse, we reserve the right to terminate accounts showing this type of activity.
Each instructor will provide a reading list from a variety of sources. Restricted access papers may be included on these lists, which should be accessed your own cost/with a corporate subscription. We will not provide licenses.
You will have access to the Academy forum, in which you can ask questions and discuss topics in more detail. All Instructors will also have access to the forum.
On completion of each module you will be issued with a certificate and upon completion of the whole course, will also receive a full course certificate.
