    What are the lectures like e.g. size and duration? That's what I'm afraid of

    Also what happens during the induction and enrollment days?

    Hi simplylldxo,

    Lecture size and length can vary, but i'll go on my experience. My biggest lecture can have up to 150 students. My smallest lecture can have 15-20 students. Standard class length is now 4 hours for programmes with 6 modules per year. You will have a break during your class, so it isn't 4 hours straight.

    Induction and enrollment are key events. Induction prepares you for your course, it gives you your timetable, reading lists and tells you about what you'll be studying. Enrollment is when you officially become a student. You have to enrol in order to release your student finance payments.

    Hope this has helped, if you have any more questions, please do ask!
