    Hi, just wondering whether any current students could shed light on what we might expect when we start Keele

    I'm going to do MMath if that helps

    If you look through the module catalogue you can see the modules you'll be taking and the time allotted to different activities, for example, on a first-year statistics module, you'll spend: 24 hours in lectures, and 12 hours doing examples classes. If you divide that time by the duration of a semester, you'll end up with 3 contact hours, per week.

    It varies by subject, and teaching team though. In some cases, you can have 10 hours of contact time, in others as little as 3. On average, you should expect to have between 10-20 hours contact time, per week.
