The amount of teaching time is actually relatively small but self-study takes up a lot of time. I would advice prospective students not to under-estimate the amount of reading they will have to do to keep up or to be able to contribute in tutorials. The type of work required is fair and well spaced and I was certainly well prepared for it in first year, it seems as though courses make a special effort to make sure you know what's expected of you. It was generally one essay per class in the middle of the semester and then exams at the end. Tutors do their best but feedback tends to be very short and I believe there is a particular problem at edinburgh about tutors being paid for marking essays so I certainly can't blame them for not writing something more lengthy if they're not being properley paid. There is a computer lab specifically for social science students, which is really useful because the library is often completely full.×

Medicine varies from pre-clinical to clinical years - from 10 hours a week to 30+ hours a week of scheduled activities, but much independent study is required. Ward duties, case reports and practical skill assessments are required. Feedback is varied.×

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
We’ve pinpointed the key sites where teaching takes place. Check in the smallprint of the course you’re interested in to see where exactly you’d be based, especially if there are multiple locations spread across a wide area.
