|Academics and Courses|
|A feature of modules in UK universities is an emphasis on the student's responsibility to learn 'independently' rather than waiting to be taught. The typical amount of contact hours (hours spent in class) for a degree student in the area of sciences could approximately about 20 to 24 hours, because of the time needed for laboratory work.
