The following table will give you an idea of what a typical academic workload might look like as you progress through your studies:
||Lectures, seminars and feedback
|Per 15-credit module
||Typically 20 hours
||130 hours (some modules may involve lab work or e-learning which would require less self-guided learning).
||16 contact hours of one-to-one or group consultation with supervisors and workshops.
||584 hours of self-study and project work.
Typically one credit equates to 10 hours of work.
If you are taking the part-time course, you will take 45-60 credits of required modules during your first year, and take the remaining credits and your dissertation in your second year, although this can be individually discussed with the student.
