I always wondered why
a) oxbridge terms (and I think durham as well) are shorter than in all other universities?
b) why isn't there a break half way like in school? perhaps the lack of a regular 'school day' makes a lot of difference, but certainly when I go to school I can't work efficiently after 4-5 weeks, I'm worried I won't manage 8
also- how do you find the term length in terms of work load, stamina, focus and stress if you are at either?
