    It very much depends on the subject, and sometimes the individual course.

    Mine was certainly full-one for eleven months (I finished my dissertation early). It was always at least five days a week + evenings, often six days a week near assignment deadlines, and seven days a week during the most intense period of the dissertation. I had a couple of days off for Christmas but no week/fortnight off that year.

    I kept reminding myself that it was only going to be a year. It was stunningly hard work, but at the end of it, I had a qualification which would last me the rest of my life.

    Mine wasn't any more work than my undergraduate degree until I got to the dissertation.
