The study load expected for a #2 course at UQ is 10 hours per week on average throughout the full semester. Thus it is expected that students enrolled in a full-time study load (#8) per semester will dedicate 40 hours on average per week to study. This includes all class contact as well as study and assignment preparation. Due to this it is assumed that full-time students are not employed in work on a full-time basis. For #1 courses the average expected study load is 5 hours per week throughout the full semester. Due to timetabling some courses may require this time spent in more intensive blocks rather than spread across the entire semester.

No dispensation will be given to any student with respect to assessment due dates or application for Special Examinations on the basis of work commitments. It is expected that students will schedule work commitments around their class timetable and allow sufficient time for completion of all assessment.
