ECDL for Students
Preparing for ECDL: This is a self-study approach. Computer based training materials are available for each module, as well as online practice tests.
Test sessions: During test sessions, you may complete a test and/or a mock test. Support is provided if necessary during mock tests. Each test lasts 45 minutes.
Estimated hours of study: Total preparations and testing time for completion of ECDL is 140 hours for a complete beginner, however, the majority of candidates complete in less time.
Time to Complete ECDL: You have 3 years to complete the ECDL from the date of successfully completing your first test (and while still a student at Queen's).
Degree Plus: As a student at Queen's if you are working towards the Degree Plus Award, your ECDL accreditation will be formally recognised as one of your achievements.
Postgraduate Research Students can record successful ECDL completion on their training and development record via Qsis - please visit http://www.qub.ac.uk/prdp. for more information.
