Learning Hours


Notional learning hours represent the length of learning time which, it is estimated, will be taken on average to achieve the learning outcomes attached to each module. The notional learning hours (or student effort hours) model adopted by this University allocates ten hours of learning to each credit in a module. So for every 15 credit module you take you will need to allocate 150 hours for learning. The learning hours include formal contact through seminars, assessment activity (essays and other coursework), and your own independent study.
