    First and Second year you have 6 modules per semester with 2 hours of lecture time per week for each module. In first year, some of my modules were 2 x 1 hour lectures or 1 x 2 hour lectures. In second and final years they were all 1 x 2 hour lectures. The timetable works in that there is 50 mins teaching time per hour so classes/lectures run from xx:00 to xx:50. The remaining 10 mins in 2 hour lectures is often used for a break.
    The timetabling is done centrally at the university, so timetables change from year to year. Lectures can run from 09:00 to 19:00 Monday through Friday except on Wednesdays when there is nothing after 13:00.

    There are additional seminars/classes for some modules which you sign up to via your online portal. They follow the same format, however I've never come across/heard of a 2 hour one.

    In first and second year, its really not that much of a busy schedule, probably 15 hours teaching time in total - that's 2 days work in full time employment.

    You get out what you put in though. You can walk away from Birmingham Business School a much more employable person with a degree from a prestigious, Russell Group, redbrick uni.

    If you want a really easy few years, choose a Polytechnic!
