I have 2 hours Eco lecture, 1 hour seminar, 1 hour workshop per week.
2 hours Applied Eco lecture, 1 hour seminar per week.
1 hour Management accounting per week, 1 hour seminar per 2 weeks. (and again for financial accounting!)
My uni, at least, expect you to do 10 hours work per credit... So for a 40 credit module we're expected to do 400 hours worth of work over the year, and that includes seminars, lectures, reading, revision, etc... However, I do nowhere near that... how much you will do will entirely depend on your ability and understanding, and how much you care about a good result...
Self studying, including doing the seminar work prior to seminars, i would say about 1-2 hours per week per subject, but nearer exam times, and when I've got coursework, that goes up significantly, and I may be doing 5-10 hours a week for them...!

I had 2 hours of lectures and a 1 hour seminar per module per week. We took 5 modules a semester, so 15 hours of contact time.
