Any idea on how much of a time commitment the program is?

From the website, I read:
Weekly lectures can comprise 6 hours of core studies and 2 hours of language study. There are students who attend programs offered by the school who simultaneously carry fulltime university study loads and/or part or fulltime workloads.


OK, so it's 8 hours of lecture a week. But how much additional work outside of lecture are there? For example, I'm a software engineer and am familiar with Computer Science course workloads. Taking 3-5 CS classes while working full-time is totally inconceivable. Even though that might be 8 hours of lecture a week, it could amount to 40 hours of work a week on programming assignments and projects. I know it does say that people have done the program working full-time, but were they potentially damaging their own health sleeping 3 hours a night or so in order to do that?
