Hahaha, oh bless. I'll reply: I have 6 hours of lectures a week and a 1-2 hour lab/workshop (depending on the week) and that's Psychology (with a Biology module thrown in too)

I have 10 hours of lectures and 2 hours of tutorials every week

Every second week I have 6 hours of tutorials

I study international business and I'm in second year

4 lectures = 7 hours. (Non compulsory)
4 tutorials = 4 hours. (Compulsory)

13 hours in total.

Studying Economics and Finance.
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.
12 hours of lectures
6 hours of problem classes/drop ins (switches each week)
= 18 contact hours each week.

Second year mathematics studying 6 equally weighted modules this semester.
About 25 at the start of the year but about 5/6 right now because most of our modules have finished for the semester. First year Aerospace engineering.
I'm jealous of you guys, I have like 35 h in A-levels. Can't wait to go to uni.
Psychology

1st year - 12 hours
2nd year - 8 hours
3rd year - 7 hours
This term I have 4 hours of lectures and 8 hours of labs for computer networking :smile:
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:
At the moment we have between 17 and 20 hours with coursework and field trips but hey home for Christmas Friday.

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.
Every week
3 lectures a week (3 hours total)
1 tutorial (1 hour 30 mins)

Every other week
One seminar (2 hours)

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 :smile: )
On average, for the first semester, it was about 11 or 12 hours worth of lectures/tutorials/pracs.

Next semester **** gets real...One 32 hour week among other weeks from hell.... BSc Biomedical Science btw.

I have 15 hours of lectures a week, with about 10 hours *variable) of labs.
I'm studying second year Chemistry BSc
my course is pretty intense - im on campus 9-5 most days, either in lectures, or making use of the workshops for projects... apparently third year almost kills you... not looking forward to that next year!
