Preparing for your studies

How long does it take to prepare for a qualification?

All of our qualifications are distance learning/home study programmes so it is at a candidate's discretion as to how long they take studying and when they take examinations. 

However, the Guided Learning Hours (GLH) for each level are as follows:  

Level 2 / 5 Award qualifications: 90
Level 3 / 6 Award qualifications: 120
Level 4 Certificate qualifications: 260              

Do I have a qualification deadline date?

Yes. Candidates have 3 years from their registration date to complete all units of a qualification.

Do I need to enrol with Propertymark Qualifications to sit examinations?

Yes. Each candidate must enrol with us to establish their own candidate account and obtain their unique login details.

Please refer to the 'How do I begin' section on the relevant qualification webpage where there is a six-step process for each candidate to follow. 

What are the main methods of study?

Candidates must refer to the Qualification Specification document on the relevant qualification webpage, under the subheading 'Useful documents'.  This document contains important qualification information such as learning outcomes and assessment criteria. Candidates should use this document to conduct self-research to fully prepare themselves for examinations.

Candidates can also purchase distance learning study materials to aid their learning (these are not mandatory).  Propertymark Qualifications do not supply study materials but do have a preferred supplier, MOL. 

Who are MOL?
