The teaching amounts are not huge, so you will have plenty of time to do independent study or get a part time job. The teaching varies every day with a lecture and a following seminar on that subject. The content most of the time is very interesting and educative. However not all lectures are as exciting as others and not all tutors are as interesting as others. Most common type of work set is a group presentation or an essay. These are very standard and doable. There are also practical work set depending on the terms content i.e. make up your own business, in which you have the ability to learn yourself many factors that can't be taught in class. There is always a feed back session at the end of the term which goes over all aspects in which people had either struggled or done well.
