You'll get your timetable once you start your course.
Typically its mixture of university studying/lectures & practical theory's. Plus out on placements either at GP surgeries or at hospitals - hospitals maybe 12.5 hours shifts working weekends/nightshifts & dayshifts on wards or in A&E with your days off, If its outpatients department then its about 8.30/9am till about 5.30/6pm perhaps . as for GP surgeries its from about 8am - 6pm Monday to Friday with day of during week same with outpatient departments with weekend off.

Generally your placements are around 7/8 weeks blocks as same with university time, you'll do about 3 placements first year, same in second year and your last year it is 2 placements.

Due to covid19 & some universities doing mixture of both online learning & face to face learning you may have to do less placements this year but will be made up in future years.

Only thing I'd add is that there's also district nurse and health visitor placements, usually 9-5 Mon-Fri. Other than that would just reiterate this.

I think I covered that under the GP surgeries placement as that would perhaps take all of that in ?

This is so helpful. Thank you very much.
But can you give me a hint of the number of lectures in a week?
