Hey. They say it's about 21 hours per week of work.
And that really depends on you. Some people watch lectures at double speed and are pretty well versed on a lot of the content already so their actual hours per week is less than someone who is less confident and has less adjacent medical experience.

Thanks for your reply, I suppose what I was asking is do you have anything you have to be there for at a certain time? Like being on teams for a tutorial or something ? Or can all the coursework be done in your own time? Obviously excluding placement.

Yeah there are 'simultaneous sessions' which you have to attend online at certain times. In our first semester these were spread out but often on 2 days a week. They are trying to condense this to one day a week but that's yet to happen.

You also have to do a GP session in person once a week.
