    You say that, but it's nowhere near as simple as you'd think, at least it wasn't when my mum did it 20 years ago.
    It's a joke of a degree, accept it.

    my Sport Course was pretty easy. 6 hours lectures a week.

    1st year = 6 x 1,500 word essays
    2nd year = 4 x 2,500 word essays, 1x exam, 1x 4000 word work experience project.
    3rd year = 4 x 3,000 word essays, 1x exam, 1x 10,000 word dissertation

    3 modules a semester and not much work to do other than the essay, just attend lectures and start collecting thoughts for the assessment. Some module had presentations / practical worth maximum 10% of semester grade.
    You have more essays to write in your first year than I have in my whole degree. Almost

    Nah, read my post a bit below it. She didn't do a degree though, and it was very practical. It's definitely not a doss course, though I won't say anything for its academic merit.

    I reckon English would be fairly dossy, if you were good at it.

    Yeah, mainly. Also, I'm doing languages so they don't really expect me to write essays using them. It's more oral and grammar exams.

    Whatever degree I'm not studying


    But seriously though, I often get friends telling me how my course is a doss and I'm always home. Which is true, but I have plenty of work and there are times when I'm super busy and as far as I can see my friends are doing next to no work. The work pattern for different degrees is so different it's difficult to judge (well, unless someone does 2 degrees to directly compare).
