Funny that there's no a similar thread!!

I have a conditional offer for sport science, just still not sure whether I should put is as my firm choice or not.

Hi everyone!

Congrats! I'm a Student Ambassador here at Kingston. I'm a second year now, so I was in your position last year.

Ask me any questions form what lectures are like, timetables, nights out, things to do etc.

Looking forward to chatting with you!

Hi ChemistryEnergy

It really depends on your course for example Engineering students are generally in every day. In my first year I was in roughly 3 days a week with breaks. Also your timetable can change week to week, I had a module where I'd have a lecture every 2 weeks.

I was in Tuesday, Wednesday, every other Thursday and finally Friday. I think I was in roughly 12 hours a week. This year, however, I'm in 10 teaching hours over 2 days.

It will be different to a school timetable because you have to be self motivated! The library is also open 24 hours a day if you work better in the evenings.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions,

Chloe
Student Ambassador.
