It kind of varies. I have a different timetable for every week, so depending on whether or not I'm assigned to labs or tutorials that week, have group meetings for presentations or assignments, etc etc etc, its very hard to give a definite answer!
At the minute its not too bad...maybe 10-15ish hours a week of lectures and anything from 4-10 hours of labs, tutorials or workshops on top of that (not every week). Last semester I only had around 10 hours per week.
First med was busier...I don't have the timetable to hand but you'd probably be looking at 20+ hours of lectures and 6-10 hours of labs/workshops a week.
I'm sure its different for each college anyway depending on what sort of labs they have or how much group work they do. Also I won't even go into how long we'd spend studying outside of lecture times
