    yes but you dont learn much in a lecture anyway. lectures are there to tell you what to study on your own.

    however, since most lectures have slides up (well all for me) you might as well learn from the slides - if you find the material easy going you will spend less time than going to lecture and then looking at it again to make sure you understood everything.
    No idea what course you do, but even with lecture slide put up on the internet it would be near impossible to actually follow what was going on without attending the lecture where it's actually explained to you and you have the option to ask any relevant questions at the first moment they arrive. Our lectures are defiantly not intended to 'tell you what to study on your own' they are a chance for the lecturer to explain new concepts in detail to the whole year group in one go. There's no way you could learn as quickly by just going through the slides on your own and trying to figure out yourself what is going on.

    If I were you, I would keep a record of the emails sent, and make a formal complaint to your head of department regarding her behaviour. But be very formal and sensible about it, they like that.

    print the emails and go to your course leader. Are you on a course where the 1st year count for nothing overall and has like a 40% pass rate if so then just concentrate on passing. Also at uni unless you are dying being ill isnt an excuse that certinally seem to be the case here where by unless you have a doctors note sickness is not allowed at all!!!

    can't believe you're thinking of changing course just because of a disagreement with a lecturer. when are poeple going to bloody realise that you cant get on with everyone in life, if you think you can you're naive and most likely a pushover. Trundling along with everything hunky dorey is fine and easy, but challenges in life involve working with people you dont get on with, but you have to make do. stop whinging and complaining because one person in your life doesn't like you.
    Completely agree with this. Just get on with it and try to catch up with all of your work. If it becomes completely obvious that she's being really unhelpful then just slap her tits off.

    Im not going to pay f***ing £3225 a year in tuition fees to not get the help i need!
    What a retarded argument, so that 3225 goes to that one lecturer for your one module does it? stop acting like a SCHOOL CHILD and realise university is about independent study and not getting all your work gifted to you on a ******* plate. you either: A. went to private school and got told what to do and when or B. are to immature for university.

    Awful as it is, I can't help but feel a cloud of snobbery/sadness in that it's surely a newer university, right?

    Anyway, report her to the Gestapo (or other such higher authorities)!

    Get notes off someone else on the course? Failing that go to the head to department and explain the situation

    i do economics/econometrics/maths. we also dont get to ask questions in most lectures. (imagine if all 500 suddenly were to ask questions).

    i definately agree, and i go to all lectures, but that doesnt meant they should be compulsory for those that rather learn the stuff on their own. plus some lectures may be boring so you start chatting, or you fall asleep (guilty :p:)

    Why 2 weeks? If I were you, I'd have tried to go in after one and a half weeks or something, the period where you're infectious goes after the first week (I know someone here who had it and she was wandering round with it but could attend lectures and tutorials because she had passed the infectious stage). I know you must have felt lousy, but if she was being such an idiot with you it'd probably have been advisable to at least go in to see her about your situation (facebook is a bit ****)

    Lectures aren't compulsory here, but tutorials and practicals etc are.

    What is your uni's policy on absenses? I missed my practical due to flu(ordinary ) and had to get a self-cert from GP, and fill AAE form, to re-sit the said practical/. Maybe you could get some medical documentation related to your flu, and speak to someone else about it (head of the year, department, personal tutor?) to help?

    In that case you definitely need to speak to someone senior to your teacher, its not fair for you to fail the course considering the circumstances. In the meantime do your best to catch up with the course using other resources (try asking coursemates?) You teacher sounds like a right biatch :p:

    Uhh...firstly get her the hell off your facebook! Doesn't matter if that's HER preferred way of keeping in touch- she's got no right to make you accept that way. Secondly, why not discuss with your course leader and see what he/she has to say about the way the lecturr's treating you?

    you dont (or should not) get marks for effort. thats what i meant.

    because tutorial is for you to ask questions, and they are quite frankly paid to do it. it shouldn matter if you attended lecture or not, if you looked at the material in your own time. i agree its not "fair" on the lecturer but theoretically its up to you to decide whether you need the lecture or the time may be better spent otherwise, since you already paid your fees.

    btw how small are your lectures? my lectures are too big for lecturer to notice if any particular person is there or not.
    Although my lectures are big ( <100), lecterurs can still take note of who's attending or not. If you're unlucky (most of the times anyway), the lecturer would actually notice that you are not attending classes and would make sarcastic comments about it in his/her next class. Don't understimate their capacity of memory to store people's name and face is what I got to say :yes:

    our class teachers are not our lecturers (in 95% of the case) so dont know our names.

    and most of our lectures are too big in size - both students and room (can be at the back or side) so i strongly doubt that unless you always sit in the same spot near the front the lecturer would notice if you are there or not.
