Allocation of Credits
Credits are usually allocated on the basis of “notional study hours” of 10 hours per credit. In short students are expected to spend a total of 10 hours for each credit they receive. These 10 hours can include class time, personal studies, reflection and writing of assignments as well as group projects or excursions, etc.
200 pages read
a brief assignment
|30 + 10 hours
30 hours of class time
10 hours of group project
400 pages read
a major assignment
review and reflection of material
exams will most probably take place as recorded interviews
In case of 8-credit courses the allocation will, of course, be adjusted accordingly.
