    Hey, I'm thinking about doing a mental health nursing course at UEA next year, but I need to know how many hours a week contact time you get. I'm going to need to work as well, to be able to support myself, as I have no money for uni... and have decided to turn down my offer for Law because of the sheer amount of contact time, leaving no time for work.
    Ideally I need to be able to work quite a lot during the week, and am looking for a course where I don't get too much contact time and lectures, so that I can work a lot too (meaning that I can do most of the work on my own time). I'll be living at home as well, so I'll have to commute.
    Anyone got any ideas of the course I can take? Mental Health Nursing sounds good, but I have a feeling it's not going to be possible, because of unpaid placements etc.
    I've just done Philosophy, Psychology and English lit as A-levels. Can anyone give me any advice on this...? Otherwise it will have to be an open university course!

    sorry to say this but I don't think you will be able to get into mental nursing course at a uni without any science a levels!

    Ive never heard of 'contact time' what is this?

    Hi there,

    I think you need to email the department at UEA, and im sure its a very high standard department. Best try the admissions tutors about your grades, or even go to an open day to speak to studets who actually study there.

    an anyone give me any advice on this...? Otherwise it will have to be an open university course!
    I dont think we have any one on TSR who studies this course, so please dont judge what you think of the course and decide not to apply based upon what is posted here.

    If you want university courses with few contact time?

    English Literature (lots of reading)
    History
    Philiosophy
    Any other arts and humanities degree

    Although all will involve some reading, they will involve fewer than 10 hours of contact time.
