Edit Workload Content
This paper has an expectation of 40 in-class hours and 110 additional study/work hours. These 150 hours are a University wide requirement and reflects a professional commitment. Absences can create problems for both an individual’s learning progress but also for their student colleagues. If students are prevented from attending classes for any reason, and expect to be absent for more than four days, they should advise their lecturer. If students know in advance that they will be absent from a lecture, or if they unavoidably miss a class, the paper coordinator or lecturer should be advised.
