    Given that pretty much the entire intellectual worth of my university study came from the content side, and that the language side was (and likely only ever can be) completely two-dimensional, I would never consider wasting the university experience on a triple-language degree. I expect you find that even more offensive.


    Only because you wouldn't be able to hack 3 languages!
    Bored of you now.... going to go waste more of my university education.

    This post isn't helpful for the thread, you are just being rude now. I personally wouldn't touch a language degree at all

    I studied Catalan in addition during one of the years, so your point falls flat.

    Catalan for one year. Really? That's your argument - a small language that acts as an elective against 3 languages for 4 years - behave.

    You have got to be kidding me. The language units are the most piss-easy parts of a language degree. You listen, absorb, do a touch of practice and watch the news in the language a couple of times a week and you're laughing. Keep up the good work.

    You come across extremely condescending, wow.
    you need to be quiet and stop judging people you don't know! his life, his decisions. If he is being blase about it (which he is not) its none of your business. And stop acting like you are his parent, you're not.

    I really don't see why going to university is necessary if your only intention is to learn other languages. Most tennis players can speak two or three languages and the majority of them probably never finished their high school education. I feel sorry for you.

    I think they can but doubt they would, my attendance was rather erratic in first year and first term of second year and all that happened was I got an email towards the end asking me if I was okay.
    I think it's more they'll be less lenient with you if you mess up or fail, so if you fail a module and have awful attendance you could get asked to leave.

    TBH I don't learn a great deal from being in the lectures, recordings of ours are all put up online anyway (barring the occasional techinical problem) and I learn more when I can go through it at my own pace. I'm planning on going to all of them now though, mainly beause I find physically attending lectures makes me more motivated to go over the content and not put it off.

    My attendance for some seminars has been horrible though I've attended the majority of lectures and I've never had anything said about it. I do plan to aim for 100% in semester 2 however.

    They're highly unlikely to kick you out on a first warning, especially if you're getting reasonable coursework/exam results.. Use the meeting to see how serious the problem might get though. If you can find anything on the intranet about attendance monitoring or requirements, you might be able to figure out whether you're actually in serious trouble or just getting a pep talk.

    Bear in mind that part of a uni's ranking is based on failure rates. If they think someone is a dead cert for failure, they'd rather have them drop out before the end of the year, than appear in the stats as a failure. Ranking tables feed into how unis are seen by prospective students. If they think you're going to make them look bad, they ditch you if they can.

    We can't tell you as every uni can set its own rules. Your uni should have provided you with instructions for re-entry when they placed you in Interrupted status. If you can't find them, then ask your course leader or Student Union rep.

    Well it's not like you can say "Oh I'll just pay £2,000 and I'll turn up to some of the lectures" It's either all or nothing.
