    Usually around 40, but may occasionally rise to 50 if I'm doing an essay.

    My course is medicine.

    I'm doing 3 a levels and I work until 11pm at night from 7am. My break is the journey back from school, lunch and dinner, so 1 hour free time a day here. However, today I have a little free time as I'm accumulating 'work debt' to pay off tomorrow night.

    I have 14 hours of lectures a week, and try to study at least 9-5 every weekday, but that doesn't always happen, especially as I have society commitments. I also try to do some work at the weekend as well, so I'd say around 30-35 hours a week

    Less than 10 hours a week. BSc Computer science. Although I'm going to change that for my third year and study 40-50 hours per week including everything, lectures etc.

    Consequence of studying so little means I've finished 2nd year with less than 50%.

    I do a part time online course which is the equivalent to a first year of a degree and I'm told to study 10 hours a week and do around that, though I would like to study more hours so as to get a really good understanding of the subject say 20 - 30 hours a week, I do 2 hours in the evening that's it.

    Put it like this so far I'm doing two courses Study Skills and Western Architecture I started both in January the end of January so far I've had two assignments one 300 words long and the other 500 words. The next assignment deadline is 10th March 350 words the other is like 1000 words but is due in 4 weeks time. And that's it - for that I'll get 15 CATS points FHEQ Level 4, 120 CATS points is a degree and all the courses are roughly the same. After that it's a diploma for the second year of the degree and then either a university like Oxford Brookes for the final year or the Open University.

    Trouble is what with it being so easy I'm getting lazy and need to step my game up a bit or I'll be out of my depth come the third year.

    What's the online school you're doing it with? I'm interested in maybe studying distance while working full time

    Either 25% of respondents are part time, or they don't go to uni.

    I don't think the OUDCE does business management. Apart from the Open University what other universities offer online courses?

    I have 8 hours of lectures a week and about 6/7 hours of those aren't worth going in. Outside of that, if I have an assessment due in then I tend to do maybe 10 hours a week, otherwise I don't really do anything. :getmecoat:

    Yeah, just looked on their website and they don't do. Oh well. My other options I've seen are OU, RDI, Essex, Napier, and a few others.
