    Do you think it is too little?
    It is a social science.

    It should say in the module guide how many hours are expected.


    150 hours are expected (in total) for Bachelors 15 credit modules, so 7 seems like very little!!

    150 hours per week? for 15 credits? no way. Is it that realistic? Then FML with 30 credits or 60 credits with a dissertation. I will email the tutors!

    Oh, haha. I didn't realise you meant per week! It's in total for the whole module, including taught sessions.

    So you should be doing 300 hours/ 600 hours, divided by the number of weeks, minus the taught sessions.


    But I don't know if anyone really spends that much time on their modules.. maybe 2 thirds of the recommended time..?

    In that respect, would you say 7 hours per week per module should be ok?

    It's not about the hours, it's about how productive you are.

    I guess but I don't know how many weeks you have.
