Contact hours and workload

Overall workload

You should expect to spend approximately 35 to 45 hours a week studying on your course. These hours consist of structured activities and independent learning. You will experience a mix of in person teaching, that will take place on campus, and structured online learning delivered through the University’s virtual learning environment.

Structured learning activities

MSc programmes deliver two taught semesters followed by a dissertation or practice-track project (where applicable) in the summer, and the associated learning hours.

Typically, you can expect to spend 10 to 15 hours per week on structured learning activities, of which approximately 60 to 80% will be in timetabled sessions on campus, and the remainder online.

In-person teaching and online activities

Timetabled sessions delivered in person on campus will be a mix of lectures, seminars and tutorials. Online activities may include following a recorded lecture, or other learning materials, or joining a timetabled live interactive session through Microsoft Teams or Zoom.

Independent learning

The remainder of your time outside these structured activities, typically around 25 to 30 hours per week, will be spent in independent learning which includes individual research, reading journal articles and books, working on individual and group projects, preparing coursework assignments, presentations, or revising for exams. In the summer period, the independent study time will increase.

To support you in your studies you will be able to access, outside of timetabled learning, facilities on campus and in Bath such as study spaces, computers, and the Library.

IT requirements

To take full advantage of the online resources available to you, and to ensure you are prepared for learning fully online, should that become necessary, you will need regular access to a computer with a microphone and camera, along with a reliable internet connection. The University will make available to you the key software you need for your course, including access to Microsoft Teams and Zoom through your University account.

Key software for your curriculum will be accessible remotely.
