Additionally, there will be a project based assessment to demonstrate your ability to apply the knowledge.

With reference material and practical tutor support the student can move into a more specific area on a project basis.
As a guide you should expect to study for around 82 hours for each of the three modules and 26 hours for the project based assessment. The course has to be completed within 4 years, but the usual period of study is 15 months. These are recommended hours only, as the completion time will vary from student to student.
Each module is completed by means of an assessment. Assessments usually comprise a 3000 word report linked to the practical application of Customs procedures in the working environment – students have 6 weeks to research and complete the assessment. The project based assessment requires a 4000 word report.
