How many assignmentsWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I am excitied but nervous in going to university. How many assignments do you get each term and do you get lectures at weekends. How many lectures a week do you normally get and what do you do in your spare time
Some might have sample timetables on course webpages. If not, ask admissions for one to look at
The number of lectures I normally have in a week varies greatly. Some weeks I may have about 6/7 lectures and some weeks I'll have 14/15.
In my free time I tend to watch TV/films/youtube, hang out with friends or my boyfriend and play video games.
I hope this helps!
While the fact it varies has been covered a lot in this thread, in both courses I've had, the general layout has been the following:
Module 1 - 2 assignments with different due dates, weighted for total module mark
Module 2 - As above
Module 3 - As above
And then the same for Semester 2, just with different modules.
This may not apply to you of course, but it gives you an idea. You may have examinations instead of assignments, you may only have one large assignment, you may have your dates closer together.
I hope this gives you some insight though on what kind of structures are available.
