Your University Questions, Answered.
How many contact hours will I get?
The number of hours you are in class a week will very much depend on the subject you are studying.
Those doing Arts and Humanities courses can expect a lighter timetable, but with lots of additional reading and research. Science and Health students will have a very different timetable, with more contact hours, with labs and practical classes as well as lectures and seminars.
So really it boils down to what subject you are studying and which modules you take.
You might want to take a look at the Unistats website, which will give you a breakdown of percentage of time in learning activities by course.
As well as contact hours, a significant portion of your studies will be led by you, making use of your own time management skills. Luckily there are a variety of places on campus at UEA to accommodate this, particularly in the Library. With silent study rooms, individual PCS, and group study areas, there are plenty of resources to help you learn.
