I’m not an expert..what I’ve heard is that 8 months is considered as 1 academic year and for 1 yr course 1yr of pgwp is granted. Whereas, if you do 2 courses of 1-1 yrs, then you’ll get wp for 3 yrs.

What length you are granted, is completely up to IRCC’s officer who handles your specific case. There is no real value in comparison to other people.
