A full-time course on your own terms
As a Vicars student, you’ll have all the benefits and responsibilities of a full-time student, without the rigid schedule or endless hours sitting in a classroom that you’d get at a conventional college.
Each month, you’ll have four full in-class days. Each day is a combination of practical hands-on instruction, and lectures on massage theory. You’ll also test your understanding of the material with monthly quizzes, and even have in-class clinics with real clients.
When you’re away from the campus, you’ll spend an average of 30 hours per week practicing what you’ve learned, completing practical and written assignments, and studying. You’ll stay connected to your classmates and instructors through our online learning platform and work from your textbooks.
Our students appreciate this learning model because it allows them to control their own schedules without compromising on the quality of their education or stretching out their time in school as they would have to do it they chose a part-time program. Many of our students continue to work while they’re in school, though most cut down on their hours in order to keep a healthy balance.
