I don't actually have that many lectures, about 6 or 7 a week, but I have probably an afternoon of labs a week. None next term though, bt lots of revision instead!! I find even if I've hardly got any timetabled hours, I get so much work to do outside lectures anyway that it doesn't make any difference.

I had four hours of official classes a week this year, all on Monday afternoons for some reason...

I would have had more though, only I chose to do two dissertations, which take up two of my four units.

last term my maximum was 22 contact hours a week. insane. that includes a 10 til 4 lab (which was pleasantly followed by 2 lectures). Ermm, 4 9ams and 1 10am. When my labs were over (halfway through the term) that went down to a pleasant 14 odd hours as i also had one less lecture module.

So had lectures, labs, one tutorial and two seminars a week. I do physics. Don't do physics. However (yes there is a small however), outside lectures i did almost no work, except sunday evening when i did a couple of question sheets and a lab report.

Though as I sit revising for a couple of exams i've got next week, i now realised i should have done more work outside lectures.

Physics = joke. especially when you've got a couple of girls doing early childhood studies just down the corridor who seem to do..... lets say.... very little.

I do archaeology at Exeter and have about *counts on fingers* 9 hours of lectures this Semester, last Semester it was 10, in the First year I think it was about 11 - 13 (can't actually remember). I do have seminars as well, it depends on the lecturer as to whether or not they allocate extra time for them or substitute lectures with them.

I do have a three day weekend at the moment (Monday off) but I also work part time so my free time gets taken up. Plus depending on module there is plenty of work to keep me going outside of lectures that I have to do.

ETA : There are also field trips etc that take up extra time. Metllurgy this semester the lecturer expected us to keep two full days free for some practical bits (the lecture is normally only three hours) but we won't begrudge her because they were good fun!

3 x 2 hour lectures + 3 x 1 hour seminars = 9 hours a week. Always lovingly scheduled so we get minimum 4 day weekends (both semesters )

I had four English lectures and two Politics lectures, plus a 1.5 hour English seminar and an hour long Politics one, so 8 1/2 hours in all, with seminars monday morning and friday afternoon :mad: Next term I think I only have 2 lectures and one or two 1.5 hour seminars, so between 3.5 and 5 hours. Probably do about 20 hours work outside contact hours too, give or take a few depending on other commitments.

*thinks* 6 hours a week mostly - that's 2 lectures, 1 seminar and 2 Latin classes a week. On alternate weeks I have a Classics seminar as well, so at most I have 7 hours a week.
