How many hours do I need to dedicate each week?

University of the People classes take place online, so students can learn wherever and whenever Internet connection is available. Whether you have a fast connection or a slow one, students receive the same lesson. All materials, including the lessons, are online texts. To allow even more people to participate, the lessons can be read in the span of a few days. They are not restricted to a specific time so that the students can study and participate in the course discussion forums whenever their lives allow it. One can log on and study around their schedule and at their own pace. It is suggested that one will need to dedicate on average 15 hours per week for each course taken. We recommend students take 2 courses per term.
