According to Table 3 of the SLQF (pages 19-21), the minimum volume of learning required for a Bachelor's degree is 90 credits after SLQL 2, and for a Bachelor's Honours degree it is 120 credits after SLQL 2.
Further, in page 8 of the SLQF, under Volume of Learning section, it is stated that: "In the SLQF credit system, the student workload of a study programme is defined as 1500 notional learning hours per academic year". This requirement is equivalent to 30 credits per academic year.
In view of the above two guidelines given in the SLQF, the minimum duration in years required for a Bachelor's degree is 3 (three) and for a Bachelor's Honours degree it is 4 (four).
