This cycle I signed up for many courses and I don't really know how to handle them because between so many things to do I don't have enough time to sleep so maybe it's better if I only sleep 4 hours every day. Has anyone an experience with that?

For most people, no. It'll likely cause severe burnout.

A few nights of little sleep are draining as it is. So don't want to keep that up!

No, and I don't know how you'd function with that little amount of sleep.

They say Baroness Thatcher got by on four hours a night.

Anyway, I do 4 hours most weekdays and I function perfectly fine.

No, it really isn’t. Best to aim for at least 6-7 hours of sleep a night, or optimally 8.

You could try, but if you're not doing it now I doubt that it'd be any good for you.

For me, yes.
I've had less than 5 hours sleep every night since before I was a teenager.
But I don't recommend that you aim to get by with less than 6 hours sleep for more than 1-2 weekdays.
