Workload

Edit Workload Content

This paper has four contact hours per week. Students are expected to attend lectures and tutorials and complete the required readings. If we consider that the ‘normal’ annual load for a Bachelor degree is seven papers we can then calculate that on the basis of a 16 week semester (including recess and study periods) the student should spend around 10-12 hours a week on average working on the paper. This includes attending lectures, completing assessed work and reading.
