How much time is spent on studying at home?Watch
Can anyone shed some light on the workload? Thanks

Some universities have straight up told students it will be all online.
Last year on my course some weeks we were getting literally one lecture a week.
Next year we are getting just straight placement for full weeks at a time to make up for it. So, we won’t have much time at all. I’m going to only be able to work at the weekends.
I’d say get in touch with your university and ask them.
I highly recommend contacting your university to find out expected course hours! I recommend having a look on their prospectus as well to see if it has any more information about this. Universities tend to have contact hours eg where you are in lessons and then a set requirement/ suggestions for how many hours you are supposed to study independently outside of lessons. And sometimes the workload can increase and from my experience get quite demanding each year! Sometimes in later years you might have less contact hours and more independent study hours but it really can vary! So I do recommend getting in touch with your university and finding out the contact hours and independent study hours each year and if they recommend working alongside your studies.
Good luck at university!
