The short answer: it depends. It depends on whether you are speaking of daily treatment "beam on" time or the entire treatment course of management. It also depends on whether you will be receiving treatment for palliative or curative intent, and whether treatment will be standard or a more sophisticated plan.

Using modern linear accelerators, the "beam on" time is generally several seconds to a few minutes per treatment. Both palliative and curative treatment can be delivered over a short period of time using a sophisticated plan. In general, for palliative care, a standard treatment course can extend from 10 to 15 treatments depending on the site and the disease type. Curative plans for management of certain sites, such as the head/neck, prostate, uterine, usually extend over a 6- to 8-week time period.
