    Hi

    I'm applying to university next year and I'd rather have a Philosophy based course where you have more contact time generally e.g. tutorials/lectures. Please can you advise if your course has been like this? Thanks.

    What's your question?

    For humanities courses you hardly get any contact time. I read Philo and English Lit at uni and you just hardly get any. You get a few hours for the lectures and maybe a few more hours for seminars to discuss what was just lectured. That's about it.

    Contact time for humanities degrees is broadly the same i.e. broadly low accross the board tbh.

    For Philosophy; it's either two of these:

    1: 3 hours of lectures, then 2 hours of seminars about what was in the previous lecture or the other way around.

    2: Just 2 or 3 hours of lectures and that's it.
