Phase 2 Questions What is the duration of Phase 2? Phase 2 is designed to run over a period of 8 weeks (2 months). However, it is important to note that the program is self-paced, you can finish it in less than the designed duration. How many hours a week should I expect to spend on my coursework in order to finish on time? Between instructional content, quizzes, projects, and other course-related activity, we estimate that investing 10 hours/week of self-study will enable Nanodegree program students to proceed through the curriculum at a successful pace and finish within 8 weeks.
