How much time do you need for study?
Choosing to study part-time or full-time will affect how many hours you spend on your studies each week.
Part-time study is roughly equivalent to studying at half the rate of a student on a full-time course at a traditional university.
- You’ll study 60 credits worth of study a year.
- You’ll need around 16–18 hours to study each week.
If you want to complete your qualification at the same rate as a student at a traditional university, for example, a honours degree in three years, you can choose to study full time.
- You’ll study 120 credits worth of study a year.
- You’ll need to do around 32–36 hours of study per week.
