A1.2.11 Part-time study

    1. The duration of a part-time programme will in all cases be longer than the minimum duration of an equivalent full-time course, but the precise length will depend on factors such as the pace of study and whether or not students' time away from their studies is being spent in activities that support those studies.  A part-time programme must provide students with adequate support and with reasonable time for private study and consolidation.
    2. Courses may also be designed with a mixture of full-time and part-time study or with opportunities for students to move from one mode to another. Their lengths will be based on the proportion of full-time and part-time study.
