How many hours of study are required for each course?

Standard Level (SL) and Higher Level (HL) online IB Diploma Programme courses typically require the same amount of time that a student would normally allocate to both class work, homework and background study for a face-to-face IB Diploma Programme class. To help with time management, students should be given the same amount of time to spend on their work in school as they would for a regular face-to-face class.

As a guide, students will spend 6-8 hours a week on their online IB Diploma Programme course. This includes 3-4 hours of lesson time in school plus homework and background studying, including researching aspects of the course, for example. The time required will differ for every student.
