same in uni, my current uni says 4 university hours is 3 ects, other unis say 4 universityhours are 5 ects ...
It's 42 x 45 minutes presence in lectures and exercises.
my current uni says 4 university hours is 3 ects
et voila 30 ects
Each year a student has to take 120 credits; one credit is considered 10 hours of "university experience", which means ten hours spent either in lectures, studying at home on the topic, in the labs etc.
So all 120 credits add up to 1200 hours to be spend on university material per year, and each of our two semesters is 11 weeks long. This all works out to around 54 hours per week if you were to follow that criteria......
you will probably understand the concepts/how to do all of the tasks ahead of you to meet a certain deadline, unlike university where your not sure how to complete a task and you don't fully understand all the concepts behind it :(
Hurrrr durrrr, I really wouldn't go to any labs or lectures when I pay lots of money for my education
