Student studyingHow much do I write?

The scale used is 2,000 words 'or equivalent' per 5 credits. e.g.:

  • 15 credits = 6,000 words
  • 30 credits = 12,000 words

The phrase 'or equivalent' is used to reflect work that may be involved if the Independent Study has assessed practical as well as written elements, e.g. graphic design, programming or performance.

The appropriate length of the written element in such Independent Study is derived in consultation with your supervisor(s).
