    I have recently starting an adult nursing course and how the university described it was that we would spend hours in lectures and in practicals, whereas we really spend about seven hours in practicals and lectures all together and the rest is online.

    I joined the course because i thought it would be very hands on, but it is basically an online course, with a tiny amount of lectures thrown in and i hate it. I was wondering could i switch to another university, or are all the courses online heavy??

    Also what would i have to pay back as i recieve a maintanence loan, an nhs bursary and the nhs pay for my tuition fees, so would i have to pay all of this back or just parts of it?

    Any university course will have a large amount of personal study. Unlike school they aren't there to spoon feed you and expect you to do work in your own time. Universities are mixed in their teaching methods with some doing at lot of the training in the university and some expecting you to do more yourself. You might also find that how your trained changes as you progress through the course. Have you tried speaking to students in other years to see how they're taught? On any nursing course you'll find you probably do the majority of your learning on placement anyway with the lectures and practicals setting the basis for that.

    I'd wait until you do a placement at least. Then you may even be thankful for the small amount of contact time in uni.
