How to choose your modules

  • At least 36 NQF credits (3 modules of 12 credits each) in your first year of study;
  • At least 48 NQF credits (4 modules of 12 credits each) in your second or further years of study.

  • At least 120 NQF credits (10 modules of 12 credits each) per year for year modules.

The maximum number of credits do not include supplementary and/or aegrotat examinations from a previous semester. Modules taken for non-degree/non-diploma purposes also count towards the maximum number of credits allowed.
You must take your available time into consideration when choosing your modules, as this will impact your academic performance. You need approximately:



  • 6 to 8 hours per week for semester modules;
