Contact time is based on 24 academic weeks, whereas self-study time is based on 31 academic weeks. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.
For the 90-credit dissertation, the majority of the 900 hours are made up of self-study time supported by a monthly seminar programme and individual supervision sessions. We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face online/in-person teaching will be complemented and supported with digital education technologies so that students experience digital learning and assessment.
The majority of learning for this degree takes place within the course timetable. All optional module choices are subject to the approval of the module leader.
Part-time students should plan to take 60 credits from the required taught modules and 30 credits of optional modules in their first year, and the 90 credits dissertation module in their second year.
King’s College London reviews the modules offered on a regular basis to provide up-to-date, innovative and relevant programmes of study. Therefore, modules offered may change. We suggest you keep an eye on the Short Courses Catalogue on our website for updates.
