Attendance in class
This course is equivalent to 3 days per week across one semester.
As well as the in-class component, you will need to complete approximately 5 hours of additional study each week outside of class hours, including private study, assignment preparation, and research. For students undertaking the course as an online/self paced option, you will need to complete approximately 16-20 hours per week of at home study.
You will need to have the basic technical requirements for at-home study. If you don’t have access to a computer and WiFi at home, we recommend using our library computers during library hours. Access to Office 365 and Blackboard is preferable.
For online students 20 hours will be expected to be completed per week via the online learning management system, Blackboard. Online students are not expected to attend classes on campus, but they are able to book a phone call or communicate through telephone conversations, Teams or email. Students need fundamental skills in navigating an online environment.
Work placement is not a requirement for this course.
