study load
Explanation:
Example ( an Australian university):

Study load
Distance education students normally study part-time taking two units per semester, half the on-campus load, due to their work and other commitments. This means that to achieve a qualification by distance education, most students take twice as long as they would on-campus. Students requiring Austudy or wishing to increase their study load need to negotiate directly with their faculty. In agreed circumstances, students may also study a lesser load.

Thanks to all of you. I think 'study load' is nearest to the Spanish, but I guess all three options are right.

1 hr
credit load


Explanation:
This looks like what is called "credit load" in the U.S.

The Divisions at Penn have established maximum credit load limits and normal desired credit load limits for their students. These limits are automatically assigned to students by the system. http://www.upenn.edu/registrar/srs/ar/dcl.html

Credit Load Restrictions
Undergraduates Courses are designed and graduation requirements are established so that a normal semester credit load for undergraduates is 16 to 18 credits. Early registration will be limited to 18 credits (http://www.uwstout.edu/regrec/reg.html)

Hope it helps.
