    Question "Hours" What does it mean here?

    Hello everyone ..

    As you've read in the title ,,

    "Hour" in this schedule, Does it mean 60 minutes or a session even when it lasts less than 60 minutes?

    I would say it means "a period of 60 minutes".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Welcome to the forum, أبوهيثم (how do you say that?)

    You should have written 'Good evening, everyone'.

    We say 'Good night' when we are going to bed or leaving somebody late in the day.

    Actually, you needn't have written any salutation at all - just go ahead and ask your question. It's only evening in certain time zones, and this is a global forum.

    1 credit at a US university typically means 1 hour. However, this hour is typically only 50 minutes.

    Re: "Hours" What does it mean here?

    Period/class, etc, would make sense to me in BrE if they lasted fifty minutes, but I'd expect these courses to offer the hours stated.
