is three group projects in one semester too much?

    • Thread Starter

    I need to pick one more module, however Im stuck between two. One of them I really want to do, but three group projects on one sesmter.

    Is too much work, group projects take up most of the time.

    what should i do?

    the alternative module, isnt bad, I did well last year in it, but im not 100% passionate about it.

    Pick the more interesting module and if it has group work then you have to trust that it's been organised so that you get it all done in time. Group work can be challenging at the best of times but you gain valuable skills.

    If the 3 group projects involve working with 3 different groups, then I'd recommend going with 2 groups plus the alternative module. Getting group dynamics to work effectively and productively takes a huge amount of time, and with no guarantees.
