Hi,

I've put UEA as my firm choice to do Software Engineering and was just wondering what the lesson times are like at UEA?

Like how many hours a week do you usually spend in a lecture?
What is the timetable like? (When does the university day start, end, etc...)

Would be great to know!

Hi, sorry I've got no idea about that particular course. In general lectures can be between 9am and 6pm, although I've heard of the odd one or two finishing at 7. Each lecture lasts 50mins (labs/seminars can be longer) and it just depends on your course as to how many you have a day. If you live on campus or nearby you can easily go home between lectures, but if not there's the hive and other places you can go to for lunch etc. Hope that helps!

Well I might be able to help you with that.

Basically I study a course called Computer Systems Engineering.
On an average most people do 15 hours a week which splits into lectures, seminars and labs.
Lectures are where you sit in a room with around 100 people for a few hours a week for each module and then a lecturer teaches you the material for that module.

Seminars are discussion/exercise groups based on the lectures, where there are set tasks and there will be a TA (Teaching assistant) to help you go through and answer/understand the tasks which are set.

Finally labs are similar to seminars except you use the computer more, e.g. Programming for instance. Set exercises in Java.

To conclude, you'll be lucky to get a day off. Most people don't, even in first year. But hours may vary for each student, day in day out.

Hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask any other questions that you may have as I work at UEA part time.
