Top 10 university courses with the heaviest workloads
University is hard work. In between making your 9 am lectures and making new friends, you’ve also got to master cooking, cleaning and your finances. On top of all that, there’s your coursework.
Depending on which course you choose, your workload will vary. Using HEPI UK Engagement Survey 2019, and raw data from researcher Rachel Hewitt, we have calculated the courses with the most contact hours, as well as time spent on independent study or work placements, per week. Note that figures have been rounded.
