Question

I am considering studying at undergraduate level. How many hours a week will I need to study?

Answer

Answer

This varies greatly between subjects but you should expect to study full-time (i.e. a minimum of 40 hours per week). The breakdown between contact time and self-study time depends on the subject, with contact time being much greater for practical-based subjects in areas such as science and engineering. The percentage of time spent in lectures, seminars and tutorials is provided in the Unistats data given at the bottom of our course pages. Please click here to access the course list.
