    My timetable (1st year history):

    Monday: 1 hour seminar
    Tuesday: 1 hour lecture
    Wednesday: 1 hour seminar
    Thursday: 1 hour lecture
    Friday: day off

    I ****ing hate it. Impossible to make any friends on my course because we have so little time and i get really bored because i have so much free time.
    Which uni is this at?

    Some of these timetables are crazy! Seems that around 10 hours a week isn't that uncommon?

    I'd hate to work out how much that costs per hour with the new fees!

    Timetable is different every week, generally this year (2yr) its been mon-wednesday 9.30 till 4pm but sometimes we're in the skills lab doing clinical skills which are on thursdays or fridays depending on the group your in, though we have had a few full weeks. This is just uni. On placement which last about 10-11 weeks its 37.5 hours worth of shift work earlies, lates, nights...generally the weeks where we do the least work because we're too tired to do it after placement days.

    Though i wouldn't change it as its what i want to do

    £9000 a year

    30 weeks in a year

    10 hours a week

    300 hours of lectures

    £9000 / 300 hours = £30 per hour

    (which is alright in my opinion *if your going to a top university)

    £20 per hour is how much i charge students for private tuition.

    not to mention if you get 15+ hours a week its less than or equal to £20 per hour

    if u get -5hours a week then its more like greater than or equal to £60 per hour

    Not quite the point I was getting at, otherwise I would have done the maths and posted it, but thanks anyway.

    I was more saying that compared to people who have 30-40 hours of face to face time a week, and possibly time in the labs as well, paying the same for that little actual teaching seems awful!

    I actually quite like mine at the minute. 9am starts are a pain but finishing quite early means I'm up and about to do other exciting things like.. go to the gym! Go to the library! Yaaayyyy!

    Monday 9-4.30
    Tuesday FREEEEE
    Wednesday 9-12
    Thursday 9-2 or 9-5 if I have labs.
    Friday 9.30-12.30

    Not bad.

    I hope you don't teach English.

    Wednesday - 10-11
    Thursday - Off
    Friday - 12-2

    Not too bad but it's annoying that I could have had everything at the start of the week if I changed teaching groups. Which I can't cause they're full

    Mine's pretty good although we have a lot of independent study atm.

    Monday 2-4 hours(9-11 or 9-1, it alternates)
    Tuesday 2 hours (9-11)
    Wednesday Free
    Thursday 4 - 6 hours although has now changed to 2.5 (30min tutorial and 2 hour lecture every other week)
    Friday free

    The only issue is the 9ams but I like the amount of free time I have atm. This is primary education.
