Kent Union President
History Graduate 2011
What did you do when you studied at university or school?
How many hours a week would you ask your students to study, including lectures, seminars and library time?
There are 168 hours in a week. Based on current statistics students at the University of Kent:
Sleep for 56 hours a week = 1/3
Use digital media for (on average) 55 hours a week = 1/3
Therefore we have 1/3 of the week for everything else, including formal studying.
How do you deal with this time deficit?
Wikipedia – Wiki = Hawaiian for Quick.
Neither. These are the tools for distraction, but not the biggest threat.
