    Depends on the course. I'd imagine you'll be in every day for the first year at least.

    I'm in 5 days a week in my third year, although I haven't been to lectures for almost 5 weeks.

    I'm in first year and am in 3 days 10-5 (various lectures and tutorials, with quite a bit of library time in the spare time during the day) and on a Monday i'm only in for an hour. Fridays off!!

    In first year I was in five days a week, but that's because of the courses I chose.

    It really depends on what course you're doing. Some people I know have pretty much 9-5 5 days a week. And then others have fewer than 10 lectures a week, so it can work out they have a day off. Getting two days off from weekdays would be unusual, I think, but possible.

    So what type of course are you thinking of?

    Five days, but they aren't terribly long, like 10-3 most days and I only have one thing on fridays. I don't know why I chose a tutorial for friday when I could have had the day off!

    4 one week, 5 the second. Not awfully busy, maybe two or three hours a day. Tons of private study, pretty much tutorial driven for most classes and they require a good few hours work in preparation.

    Five days a week, but usually only one or two lectures a day. At 9am, of course. I get Thursday off next semester.

    Economics you'll have 3 lectures a week (hr long) and a tutorial.
    Dentistry and medicine are pretty much 9-5 but for LBSS or arts, think sciences is similar, you'll prob end up with about 4hrs per subject per week. (with 3 subjects in 1st yr)
    But as long as they dont take attendence you dont have to go to all of them!!!

    Not time-tabled classes. The medicine curriculum is very much based on self-directed learning. It's rare to have a 9-5 day in first year. There's a few more in second year but it's often just half a day. If you looked at a first year medic's timetable, you'd think they're never in at all!

    Third year is different as you spend more time in hospitals and GPs. I have something every day (with maybe one day off per month) but it's not 9-5 every day, just some days.

    I believe dentistry is similar.
