I was just wondering if there is anything like a 'typical' undergraduate time table. I've never studied at uni before so I was just wondering if there's a typical time table. For example over how many days are courses usually etc.

I'm studying Maths.

Last term I had about 24 hours over 5 days, this term I have 13 over 5.

If you're doing a Arts/ Humanities subject you'll have a lot less.

There isn't really - it's all courses dependent.

Well on a humanities course then? I mean, I understand that it will differ between institutions and courses but is there not an 'average', so to speak?

At my University it's around 8-10 hours a week for history. Not sure about other courses. You're expected to do a lot of reading out with that though.

From what I can gather it go's something like this in terms of contact hours.

Medical/clinical>Sciences>Arts/Humanities

8-10 seems to be the typical figure for humanities courses. I was quoted 10 by Leeds & Birmingham last year when on a Politics open day.

I have 7 hours a week for a social policy and history degree. I think I had about 14 a week last year for a law and criminology degree.

It depends on the uni and the course.

Last year, mine was 12 hours with no days off. This year for me it's 10 hours with two days off. Next year it will be even less. Makes me wonder what it is I'm actually paying for.

It depends what subject you do.

I'm in the second semester of year 1 doing History, and my timetable is:

Monday: tutorial 4-5pm
Tuesday: lecture 9-10am, tutorial 12-1pm, lecture 4-5pm
Wednesday: day off
Thursday: lecture 4-5pm
Friday: tutorial 10-11.30am
