    Timetable won't be sorted for a bit i don't think, it wouldn't be too many - as in not shed loads! Early starts aren't all that bad, i'd rather start early then have a 5 o'clock!!

    varies, A LOT, between courses.

    drama do like a quarter of an hour a week (excuse the hyperbole)

    my first year was the busiest in terms of lectures by far, i think about 23 hours a week.

    hmm....is it wrong that I chose my third year lectures so I wouldnt have had a 9 oclock my whole time at uni? i mean I wanted to do the options as well, but that definately persuaded me....hehehe....but im one of those slacker PIRES students. oh, and drama people do have a lot less hours, but the time they have to put in rehersals and reading and general meeting up-ness wise certainly takes big chunks out of their free time, i didnt see my best mate for weeks on end last year when she had a big piece of work in!! but still...no exams...cant be bad...!

    lol, well its good at least you dont have to get up early you can say that afterwards hehe. i know what you mean about some people who have less lectures but have to do more stuff in their own time like drama and art students. slackers still not having exams are not the best i think, because it means that your coursework and other work has to be top notch. its not like us that use c/w to fall back on if exams dont go to plan

    do art foundation students have lectures?, im pretty sure i saw loads of art foundation students going out for every hey ewe, rock night and FND. cos it seems they have loads of time off, i may be wrong tho.

    No no, its all right.
    - Buts its all good, 22hours is a nice number, lol!

    It can be a little un-funny at times, like the fact i had more lectures on monday that most of my block had in a week. But you get used to it!

    Come christmas i had only missed on lecture, and that was to do our online math test, which i had forgoten to do earlyer! (we had to start before a set time, which was dueing said lecture.)

    I think 6/8hours is about average for most coarses tho?

    surely not

    most courses have a 2 hour lecture and 1 hour tutorial per module per week.

    so around 18 hours usually.

    No, not as such...

    They have long hours doing art stuff tho, like 9.30 though till the afternoon.

    Its a little flexable, although they do have to turn upto atleast 85% of them, or something like that.

    No biggy missing lectures really. Altho the lecturers will tell you that the correlation between attendance and achievement is very high, as proved by me in both 1st and and 2nd year... low attendance = poor achievement
    But if you HAVE to take a couple of days off then you could tel your lecturers and they'll be cool with it.

    Yeah, you can skip lectures veeerrryyyy easly as and when you want. Its a very slippary slope to year-failer...

    No one really says anything about it, and 9 times out of 10 they wont even notice!

    Thats basicaly half the point of, its upto you, you make your own decisions.
    - You supposted to be there because you want to learn, and be self-motivated etc.
    - It not like school where they send letters home if you miss hwk, and your dad waking you up when your about to miss the bus!


    But its very true, certianly on more intence caouses, that attndance is vital if your going to acctally pass they year.
    - Thats how most people fail, becuase they dont have the self-organision and self-dissaplin to actally get there!

    On SEFS, we had to sign into every lecture, if you didn't turn up to any Les (head of dep) would send emails to the head of the course you plan to go onto the following year... still didn't stop people though!!
