    Where did you get that from? You could have any number of lectures a day. It all depends on the university and department's time table.

    I have two or three a day, although i only have 3 days a week, some of my friends doing english lit or history only have one a day, it depends on what subject you take, the less lectures you have the more independent learning you are expected to do.

    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

    Twenty hours a week is normal for a science, twenty five for engineering. One hour a day is typical for some arts courses, like history or philosophy, but you will have tutorials on top of that.

    I had around 10-20 per week, that's not including labs/tutorials.
    Chemistry degrees have too much contact time :mob:

    I have up to seven lectures on some days, and that doesn't count labs and supervisions :nooo:
    On the other hand I get the weekends off and only 2 on Monday, so get to unwind over the long weekend :woo:

    For week 3 (my busiest) I have 23 hours of lectures + 8 hours labs + 2 hours supervisions. Then I have open structure labs schedule for all free remaining hours 9 - 5:15 every day :eeek: for the project work and then actual work to do on top
    1 lecture a day is living in dream world :p:

    Humanities and social sciences maybe, but science undergrads spend a lot more time being taught (thought maybe in labs or similar rather than lectures). Even for that first group, the expectation is you're still working even though you're not always in lectures.

    I actually never have more than two lectures a day, no more than three hours contact time on any one day. But then, we're just expected to do reading instead

    I have seven hours of lectures every Friday. You can't tell me that's fair. :p:

    To be honest, it'll mostly depend upon what course you're doing and where you're studying. For example, courses which exhibit a mainly problem-solving aspect will inevitably demand more lecture/contact time than others which primarily revolve around remembering key facts. The latter courses will simply expect you to use this 'extra' time in reading & getting to grips with the course material. :yep:
