This is quite a difficult question in respect of our programme because we do not stipulate a time per week/month that should be spent studying, as we recognise that the majority of our students are in full-time work and have workloads that fluctuate throughout the year. A single credit is intended to represent a notional 10 hours of student input. Thus a 20 credit module represents 200 hours of student input.
As we aim to make the programme as flexible as possible students are given several chances to extend the submission date for a module without penalty. They are allowed an ‘amended submission date (first extension), a further amended submission date (second extension) and a final amended submission date (third extension).
If students fail to submit by the final amended submission date, then a penalty is imposed for non-submission and a mark of zero awarded. However, it is recommended that students attempt to meet initial submission dates wherever possible as repeated use of amended submission dates could result in running out of registered time.
We have an informal group outside the confines of the course - in Facebook, which is proving very popular. Currently, we are investigating ways of further promoting student interactivity.
We also hold an annual, voluntary, free Summer School which we have found greatly supports a sense of community among distance learners.
As our programme is flexible, short periods of being unable to study because of work or domestic problems can be easily accommodated as long as the tutor and administrator are informed. If the problems are longer term (more than a month), students are advised to voluntarily interrupt their studies for a while.
