How the Programme structures how much you learn and when you learn it

The Student Learning Time (or more commonly known amongst academicians as SLT) is a guided time management system to simulate the amount of time expected for a particular student to spend on learning. It is usually constructed by the school in order to assist the student in their time management, although it stops short from being a rule that has to be followed. In this aspect, students would be able to refer to the SLT and manage their time properly, especially in relation to other subjects.

In essence, the SLT is depicted in a weekly format. Each week, students are expected to participate in certain activities ranging from Face-to-Face learning (F2F), to self-directed learning to revisions for exams. SLT relates directly to the amount of credit a particular course (subject) holds. A 9 credit course (such as the Design Thesis) would see weekly hours spent most on it as compared to a 3 credit course.

The table below illustrates the SLT for both Thesis and Pre-Thesis as a general guide. Each workbase may have variations on hours spent on certain activities, but certain events have been dictated by the School and may not be changed.
