teaching time is very little, which at first seems great. however you have to learn that if you do 12 hours lessons you MUST do 12 hours at home. its not just preparing for each class, but coming away from the class making sure your notes are going to be understandable in 4 months time when you have your exams! Essays are very common, 1-2 in each module along with exams (practical and physical) homework (reading, research) - the most important homework is the homework not said, reading the texts before class, secondary reading etc. Feedback on essays is generally good, however if you have queries one quick email to your teacher and you will soon have a reply, or an appointment to see them. teachers are there to help you not critise you remember that! My course facilities range all over campus, we have black box rooms, theatre, studio, common room. the content of my course if engaging majority of the time, however with everything comes the boring bits and depending on your taste and preferences depends whether your boring bits are greek tragedy, shakespeare, technical theatre etc.
