Mode of Study CAMPUS LEARNING

The programme consists of core (required) and elective modules. Some modules may have pre-requisites (i.e. may require the students to pass another module or set of modules first).

One credit is equal to 10 hours of learning (guided in class and independent combined); therefore 10-credit module requires on average 100 hours of learning from the students
