To help you plan your studies, be aware that each credit takes 10 hours of work. So if a module is worth 12 credits, it will take you 120 hours to complete, which includes lectures, readings, research, assignments etc. If you are not working and are dedicating your time to your studies, a full load for a year is 120 to 130 credits.  If you are working full-time you might struggle to take more than 60 to 70 credits in a year.

Please check our website for the programme you are taking so that you can see all the modules that the programme is comprised of.
