If you are taking 4 modules per term which divide up into either 2 hour lectures or a 1 hour lecture and a one hour seminar/tutorial, then you end up having at least 8 hours a week in lectures. The course is a interesting and challenging as the time and effort you put into it - you can only really participate in a seminar if you've done the reading. The reading requirements can be quite high. You have to do about 2 short essays per module per term or one long essay as coursework. There are also exams for some modules and weekly exercises for others. Feedback tends to be very good from tutors. No course specific facilities needed. The academic experience is very good all in all. Unfortunately some courses and parts of degrees get less attention than others because they are less popular, but hopefully the courses will survive and the range of courses you can take will remain good.
