Smile Uni students - contact hours? - August 16th 2010, 02:04 PM

Just wondering what the other uni students here study?

I'm doing a duel undergrad law/arts degree. Only 12 contact hours (aka hours spent in classes/tutorials) One two hour lecture and a one hour tut for each subject,

what about you?

1 X 1 hour tutorial
1 X 3 hour lab

Not sure yet But I chose my uni based on the fact that the course is quite self-dependant
a lot more so than other medical schools
however it will still be a lot more than most degree subjects, in Uni all day on most days.

It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

If I get in on Thursday I will be studying Diagnostic Radiography. Not sure how many hours I will be doing, it is mainly placement based though.

I'm studying a Bachelors of Arts with Honours in Games Design and Production Management and am (hopefully) going into my fourth year out of four.

And what I found is...well, in first year there were loads of contact hours, and they got less as time goes on, but that's possibly because we had more work to do ourselves, so the contact hours decreased correspondingly.

Not sure what the timetable is to be in fourth year.

Corporate Communications with a Duel in Media Arts and Minor in Computer Information Systems

90 min 5 to 6 classes 2 times a week = 15 to 18 hours a week


You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time.

And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do.

Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there.

That's a miracle.

You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.

I'm studying music. Last year we had about 3 hours worth of lectures, 5 1/2 hours of tutorials/seminars, then you're expected so many hours a week of independant study, and then we're advised to practice our instruments three hours EVERY DAY :| Not a chance in hell, that's insane. Which is probably why I'm so rubbish!

I'm doing an Honours Bachelor of Science program with double major biology and psychology, minor in sociology. I haven't counted the exact number up yet but roughly 14 hours per week in class/lab/tutorials.

I currently transfered over to being an English Major. I had two previous majors which were Wildlife Management and then Conservation Biology but I saw that my science grades sucked whereas my English grades were top notch. I'm hoping to go into something writing related since I love to write.

This semester I'll be taking 13 hours.

Credit hours for me is 18. I think contact hours are like 19 or 20 because of a lab.

Haven't started yet so can't say how much study I'll be doing, but looking at the timetable lectures, labs and seminars add up to 18hrs. Tutorials aren't marked for some reason.

tutorials aren't normally marked, they're their for your own benefit and you get the answers when you go, so its your choice technically wether to go or not.... they're useful though

normally give you exam tips nearer the time too.
