Warwick in general has more teaching hours than other universities, but it depends hugely on courses. My course (Computer Science) has lots of hours involved (normally between 15 and 20) but it is really interesting, and some of the teaching hours are lab sessions with older students rather than lectures. The content is quite theoretical, and often doesn't feel that relevant. However, they have cleverly thought through the course to help you aquire relevant skills rather than just knowledge - you can't teach what the modern technology world is like because it's always changing. The work I do is about half coursework and half exam based. Some of the courseworks are marked electronically and automatically, while some are done in person with you to discuss alongside. This is a great way to get immediate feedback as you get a very strong clue of how well you've done soon after you've submitted the work. Because we have our own building, the facilities are great. There are always computers free, or plug sockets for laptops and desks/sofas for more informal work. Even if there is a lab session ongoing, you'll be able to get a computer and sit to do work quietly. This is a big advantage as often the library is very full.
