Hi, I’m going to be an undergraduate in September at Lancaster Uni and I just wondered whether anyone could possibly inform me of how many hours they study for and for how many days. I’m going to be studying Business Management. Thanks!

Email the dept and ask for a copy of the student timetable.

I emailed them and they said that they couldn’t give me a past timetable as they differ each year, I just wanted to get a rough idea though!

The most intense courses will have in the region of 20 hours contact time per week. Most will be quite a lot less. The amount of time you spend studying will vary enormously between courses. Some require you to put in anything from 5 to 70 hours a week (from personal experience of doing physics) depending on the coursework you have and how efficiently you work, although for me I'd say 20 hours per week after first year would be the usual amount I needed to do my weekly coursework assignments.

You'd have the contact time spread over 5 days (well, four and a half normally as Wednesday afternoons are usually reserved for sports) and the individual study time is spread over the full week.

Really depends on the course. I do Psychology as my major; I have 5x 1 hour lectures a week, 3 or 5 (depending on the week) hours of labs, and a 1 hour seminar and then for my minor which is Criminology I have 2x 1 hour lectures and 1x 1 hour seminar each week

I'm going to Lancaster to study business management in September and I was wondering if you could answer your own question and tell me a little about the course!

Hello,
I have a friend doing a similar course so I'll ask her to get an idea! I imagine you'll have some lectures a week, some tutorials/seminars and maybe a day off! It'll definitely seem a lot less than what you're used to.
Anyway, I'll get back with an update soon!

She said she had 15-20 hours a week: 12 lectures/seminars and then about 4 lectures for her minor (although she can't remember the exact number)
