    Dude, no. I have 12 lectures a week spread over 6 days, as well as 12 hours of labs and 4x 1-hour-long supervisions (which each need 3 hours of prep work).

    Arts students generally have less contact time than science students, but they probably have a lot more background reading.

    Depends on what your timetable is.

    My uni has lectures between 9am and 9pm. None of the students I know has more than 3 subjects in a day (even that isn't common). Most of my class has two subjects in one day.

    11am to 4pm isn't too bad, with a quick few minutes between lectures for lunch, toilet, smoke etc.

    It's nasty eh! I have that 3 days a week: 1hour lecture, 1 hour lecture, 1 hour tutorial/seminar for french, 3 hour lab... Lunch doesn't really happen.... one the days I have 6hours, I also have an hour of circuit training for rowing straight after, then an hour and a half of hockey training...
    Yes, then my art student friends have the cheek to get annoyed over a few hours of lecturers a week! I'm like, thats nothing!

    Yes, lot more reading.
    My wife is on a BSc, I'm on a BA. In the first semester my reading list is about 350 books more than hers.
    She's in a day and a half on her course this semester (3 modules) though 2nd semester will be more (5 modules).

    Actually I think mine will be less than 16 hours a week. Lectures are 50 mins, or an hour and 50 mins. One is an hour and a half.

    Yeah, adds up to just under 14 hours.

    oh right,

    i never really knew that, i've had the idea of only 1 lecture a day for about 3 or 4 days a week for a generic undergraduate course so maybe i'm wrong...

    I was at City's talk on their journalism course yesterday and they said students may work up to 8 hours a day
    Generally some courses have days off so the 10 hours over 5 days that I have is more like 10 hours over 3 days split into 4 on Tuesday, 3 on Thursday and 3 on Friday. There's also a lot of other stuff that will take up your time like projects and research too.

    I have 9 hours of teaching a week. But at university level, you need to do a lot of independent work, akin to the hours of a full-time job.

    yup.

    for a BSc you are expected to study between 6000 somthing to 10400 hours in the 3 years (this is based on the CATS system i.e. 30 CATS = a certain number of hours, and the range, 6k-10k results out of modules being 25-30 CATS all count as 30 so if u have 4*25 its less than 4*30) and apparently averages out to about 40 hours a week - like a typical job.
