    Hi guys, I wanted to know how many hours a week is a full time ODP degree? How many hours is spent on lectures/ classes/seminars per week minus the placements?

    Hey. I got into the odp dipHe at bcu. Congrats! I would think 20 to 30 hours of classroom activity per week. I may be wrong. Are you orginally from bham or relocating for uni?

    Hi Fatima & Yasmin

    I'm a second year student on the ODP programme at BCU, and typically we have around 37.5 hours per week (sometimes this can be more or less - dependant on timetabling and placement hours). As you're essentially setting yourself up for a role in the NHS, you can be expected to be in lectures anytime from 8am to 9pm Monday to Friday (although it's rare that we've stayed beyond 8pm), and with placement it just depends on your clinical area and whoever you're shadowing. This may mean you do weekend work or lates - but it'll be worth it I promise

    Good luck - C x
