    I'm currently at University, and this upcoming Semester I have lectures on a Wednesday from 9am - 1pm, then a 3 hour break, then a seminar from 4pm - 6pm. However, I've noticed that alot of people have their seminars session from 1pm until 3pm. I'd prefer having it at that time, so I was thinking about asking to have it changed. However, I'm not sure how leniant Universities are if you want to change the timetable?! Surely they wouldn't look to favourably if I asked to change it if I said I had other commitments at that time?!

    On my course we can't change lecture times because there is one lecture on each module per week. But there are several seminar classes in the week for each module, and we can choose any. But when everyone was signing up obviously they chose the earlier times. I had a seminar around 4 oclock in my first year, but as soon as people started droppping out or changing times then I managed to end up in a 2o'clock seminar.
    Just ask your lecturers.

    Ask if there is a possibility of changing seminars. They can only say no. If they do then use your time to do some work.

    You can't change lectures; but can change seminars.

    Mine will only allow it for child care purposes. However, I managed to change by saying it causes problems disability wise. (truth being, didn't want to hang around for 5.5 hours just for a seminar and it would be nice to finish before 4pm)
