Which subject contains the most working hours for students?
According to the German media outlet Spiegel, its online research shows that the working hours during the semester for students in Germany varies between the faculties and institutions. At universities of applied sciences, students are busy 31.6 hours per week with their studies, while at universities the number is not remarkably lower. Here students work 30.6 hours per week average.
According to the results, the average working time for students is dependent on their study subject. Students of sociology work 22.6 hours per week while students of veterinary medicine work almost twice as much with 44.6 hours. Also pharmacy and dentistry students work 39.5 and 42.5 hours per week – an intense workload. For those students it is difficult to acquire additional skills during their studies, due to time constraints.
