The assessment load is generally equivalent to 5000 words per 20 credit module of study. The submission points for assessments are phased throughout the year to manage students' workload with specific dates made available to students at the beginning of each academic year. To allow greater distribution of workload within a module some assessments are staggered to carefully manage schedules for students.
