4 lectures of 4 hours a week.

16 hours in total theoretically. They pretty much only last 3 hours on average so 12 hours practically.

Edit: Studying Graphic Design. 4 modules a semester, i.e. one lecture per module per week.

First year law.

About 6 hours of lectures in one week and 5 in the other as we have a two week timetable. Plus 2 2 hours sessions each week that's more discussion/ group work based or when we need to go to the mock court room.

You shouldn't be! ... At uni you are in a lot less (depending on the course) but have to make up the extra studying doing further reading etc.

I'd rather be in 35 hours a week and get given the answers :cool:

I'm doing sociology and there's not that many lectures! I was surprised to start with but I guess there's lots of reading to be done on the side.

Yeah I know it works like this but personally I prefer studying at home at my own pace etc. I dislike listening to teachers (those that just read from the screen etc) because I prefer to read the coursebook at home... I attend the classes because I have to but I usually just do stuff on my phone and pay attention when they're telling trivia or anecdotes.
(And I'm best/2nd best in class in one of the best schools in the city in most subjects so it's not like I'm acting like this because I'm lazy, I just don't absorb knowledge well in this kind of environment. I like 1 to 1 classes or reading )
