How does hybrid learning at the University of Surrey work>

The website has mentioned that due to the pandemic, a hybrid learning model has been used for the 2021/2021 academic year. Because the website is still a bit vague about this will be carried out in practice, how many hours of in-person classes (lectures, seminars, tutorials) are there in one week?

Sorry I posted this too early.
If it differs significantly across the different fields, I would prefer answers from 1st and 2nd year Engineering students.
Thank you!

Hi there,

To introduce myself I’m Joao. In my final year studying BSc Economics at Surrey University, I am working as a Campus Ambassador for JP Morgan. I recently finished my one-year industrial placement as an Economist for the British Government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). I also had the opportunity to work as a Private Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Biosecurity.

For engineering, the hybrid system means you should have something like this for each module: 2 hours online pre-recorded lecture (divided into four mini-lectures), 2 hours in-person teaching (workshop), 1-hour tutorial/lab.

If you have any questions about Surrey or uni life, please ask, as I am here to help you out. :smile:

Since the 2 hours of in-person teaching just says workshops, are those 2 hours just seminars or can they consist of lectures too? If the former is true, what is the difference between the workshops and the 1 hour tutorials?
Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Hi there,
Workshops are the same as lectures. Tutorials are smaller classes with around 10/15 students.
I hope this was useful.
