We call this the “3-day Model”.Students typically attend classes three days a week, either on Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays or on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. This leaves three working days during the week for self-study, language courses or part-time employment. Some lectures or excursions are organised as blocked week events.
