... How many hours a week do you spend in the books? I'm looking at going back to uni and I just saw one course estimate full time study at 50 hours a week 0.0 !! Is that standard?
The course I'm looking at is full time with 3-3.5 days but how do I estimate how much study time I will need to spend on top of that?

They say 10 hours for every 10 unit subject...but I found when I was studying full time it was more around the 50 hour mark, some weeks 60 hours.
You need to treat full time study like a full time job.

I do one subject at a time - and I can spend 10+ hours a week on it, so I can deffo see how it could turn into 50.

I would say 10 hours a week per subject non assessment. I was doing 3 subjects and during assessments (which is 80% of the time) I was doing 70+ hours a week. But then our assessments were gigantic ridiculous things 50 pages long

The rule of thumb at my uni is 10 hours per credit point. Most subjects are 10 credit points, so they average 10 hours a week. More intensive subjects are 20 credit points and would be 20 hours.

They say 10 per subject but I also work everyday so no way can I do that haha
I'm in classes 8 hours a week and prob do an extra 5-10 hours per week on top of that at home.. More if big assignment is due ( for example have a presentation due next week so can easily do 5 hours at Uni on that on Monday) but some weeks not many hours is needed
I also work 20 hours a week

It does depend a lot on the course, assessment, and whether you have pracs to do, as a pp said.
I'm doing law and can only manage 1-2 subjects a semester or I turn into a stress pumpkin. I'd spend about 10-15hrs a week on study in a normal week. Much more than that when assessment is due and in the lead up to exams. I have a friend doing full time teaching, and it was definitely a 50 hour week.

I'm applying for a bachelor of nursing. Maybe I need to have another look at the uni website and see what a unit equates to. I've never had anything to do with the education system in Australia until recently so I'm still getting my head around it all Thanks everyone

I'm doing a masters and it's at least 20 hours a week to get everything done per subject even though the handbook says 10-14! Much longer than what I spent on my undergrad. One week alone in one of the subjects had over 24 readings.
