    I've never got more than 2 in a day. But then there's workshops, seminars, critiques and tutorials on top of that. The guide they've given us is that we should be working 40 hours per week.

    I have Monday, Wednesday and Friday off each week - on Tuesday I have 3 sessions of 50 min each (2 lectures + 1 seminar) and on Thursday I have a workshop for 1 hr 50 min and a seminar for 50 min.

    Im a 3rd year Politics student.

    However we are supposed to do about 40 hours of work each week..

    Well I have lectures, labs and tutorials, generally about 2-4 hours of contact time a day, plus optional outside speaker lectures for 2 hours 2 evenings a week. I have fridays off though, and will have tuesdays off after christmas, but obviously I'm expected to spend this time researching, writing essays and lab reports, reading and revising.

    Last year I had 4 hours of French seminars in a week (no lectures), 2 hours on Mon and 2 hours on Thurs. Then, 6 hours of Politics - 3 lectures and 3 seminars. :france:

    The lectures were always on the corresponding day as the seminars, but not 2 lectures in one day. Most I had was Thurs- 2 hours French plus one Pol lecture and sem; 4 hrs altogether.

    This year however I have no French and 2 lectures and 2 seminars in one day (Thurs) plus 2 other sems and lectures spread throughout the week. :ahee:

    Uhm, well it very much depends on uni/subject etc etc, but most people will have more than one lecture a day! I have 24 0r 25 hours of contact time a week, that is: 14 hours of lectures a week ( spose 4 of those hours could technically be classed as seminars or tutorials as there are only 11 of us doing French for scientists...), 9 hours of labs a week, and 1-2 hours of tutorials a week! My shortest day is 2 hours, and 3 of my days are 6hours (with no break )

    I have four lectures a week (two on Monday though) but that doesn't include seminars. It varies so much though, as you can see from this thread.
