Graduate Experiences

The support I have received and also the course itself has been really life changing for me.

Apart from actually starting to work in the career I’ve always dreamed of, it has been a highlight to get to network and meet other like minded people from around the world. I consider fellow students in countries as far away as Qatar and Australia as friends and it’s thanks to the Academy. I loved the networking aspect, being able to meet others and share experiences.

FAQS

Is the Certificate in Wedding Planning the right course for me?

If you love weddings and organise everything to perfection then this could be your perfect course. This is an entry level course designed for those of you looking to gain the fundamental knowledge you will need to get a job as a wedding planner. Unlike other wedding planning courses out there this course is an accredited qualification which is industry recognised, and will give you the competitive edge when applying for your dream job.

What are the career options after I graduate?

This course is as great training option for those looking to gain employment within wedding venues or with established wedding planners or agencies. Many of our graduates have done just that and gone on to launch successful careers. If starting a business is your end goal then you need to look at the Diploma in Wedding and Event Planning, which also includes the business and marketing training you will need.

When can I start the course?

All our courses are online which gives you the flexibility to learn anywhere and at times that suit you. So you really can fit your course around your lifestyle. Many of our students study whilst having a full time job and/or looking after a family.

Is wedding planning a viable career choice?

Yes! Long gone are the days when people thought wedding planning wasn’t a ‘real’ career. These days couples are more and more aware of the support options out there when it comes to their wedding, and there are plenty of successful planners out there. There will be competition, but with people continuing to marry there is lots of work to go around.

How long will the course take me?

That really depends on how much time you can devote to your studies per week. There are no set deadlines for the individual assignments. Some students have completed this course in as little as 12 weeks and others have taken the full year allocated for completion.

I have no prior experience of wedding planning. Can I still take the course?

Absolutely! We will start you with the basics and build up from there. Once you enrol you will be assigned a dedicated tutor who will mentor you through your course and provide comprehensive feedback on your assignments.
