Each module takes place once per year. Teaching for Term 1 modules usually occurs over ten weeks, and five weeks for Terms 2 and 3 modules. The time students are required to attend the School will vary according to the teaching strategy of the module, but will usually be 20-45 hours for Term 1 modules and 50-60 hours for Terms 2 and 3 modules. Learning time, including reading, is estimated to be 150 hours per module.
