As a guideline, one credit equates to approximately 10 hours of study. For example, a 15-credit paper equates to 150 hours of study. Spread over a 17-week intake, the average study time per week is approximately 9 hours.
All papers selected within an intake must be completed within that intake unless a transfer is requested (see: "Can I transfer into another intake?").
Students should enrol in alternate intakes to avoid date overlaps.
If you need to study full-time to access loans and allowances please contact Studylink for guidance on the number of credits you need to take per intake (www.studylink.govt.nz).
