3. Study Load

  • Study Hours

    In respect to study hours, we estimate that students would need to devote approximately 10 study hours per week, per unit. These study hours are inclusive of teaching time (e.g. lectures, online teaching), independent study, assessment tasks and/or examination time. Our semesters are broken down into study and exam periods. The study period is 15 weeks duration per semester. We state that the student study workload for each unit is 150 hours over the student period. 10hrs*15wks = 150hrs.

  • Equivalent Full Time Student Load (EFTSL)

    Each of our units has an equivalent full time student load (EFTSL) of 0.125 (12.5%).
    The study of one unit in a semester would be an ETFSL of 12.5%. A standard full-time load is eight units in the academic year (8*12.5%= 100% or 1 EFTSL). For our programs a full time study load would be 4 units per semester.

  • Credit Points

    Each CPEE unit is worth one (1) credit point unless otherwise specified. One credit point involves a student workload of approximately 10 hours per week over a semester.

4. Fees
