Default Ask the definition of "full-time" in skilled workers?

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resourc...s/op/op06e.pdf

In the operation manual of CIC Skilled Workers:

"Full-time" is defined in R78(1) as requiring at least 15 hours of instruction per week during the academic year, including any period of training in the workplace that forms part of the course of study.

"Full-time equivalent" means, in respect of part-time or accelerated studies, the

I would like to ask, if my Master degree is mainly learn in online, and only 1 to 2 sessions face-to-face lecture per subject, because this Master degree mainly focus on learn in web and no taught hours can be provided instead of "self-study" hours. However, my Master degree awarded by a recognised university in our home country and my certificate same as ordinary Master degree, not such kind of "Online university"

So I would like to ask, do this kind no actual taught hours be accepted by CIC? Thank you!

If our university cant provide this kind of document?
They can't estimate my part-time course equivalent to full-time calculation
and because my course is on-line mode, nearly no "instruction"

It is not about "calculation" - university should tell you how long is the program if taken on standard, full time classes basis. If it is only an online university then I doubt it's accreditation.

I mean it is an online course which held by real university.
In Hong Kong and China, there is many such kind course.

Because there is no same full-time course and my university
not able to proven it, and I'm nothing to do even I push them many times,
it's so sad......
