On the 'Teaching' tab below 'Overall workload' we updated the text with the correct information.

Typical contact hours
Timetables will vary from week to week. In the first two terms of first and second year, students typically receive around 13 contact hours (of lectures, seminars and tutorials) per week in addition to between 2 and 12 hours of laboratory sessions. Your final year will be more project heavy, and contact hours will reduce.

Amended content:
