    I think when people say 30 weeks they're including the time for exams and studying for exams.


    It was about 21 weeks of teaching for me.

    Wow, lucky you! I have like 7 weeks of holiday in the whole year. 2 weeks off for christmas, 1 week for easter and summer holidays are 4 weeks which are split up. So I get 2 weeks summer holidays and then I go placement then another 2 weeks - that sucks!

    This year just gone I had 23 weeks of learning and exmas. I finished my exams in the 33rd week but I had 10 weeks off as holiday.

    So yes it tends to be between 24-30 weeks. It all depends on when your exams end.

    mine was 12 + 12 ... i think this just shows that every uni has completely different terms - best thing to do is look at your potential uni website and look up their semester dates to get a better idea.

    Don't count Christmas or Easter as holidays. You'll have too much work to do from the 2nd year onwards :p:
