university laws (free attendance of lectures) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Are there any laws, ancient or new/ secret or published; wherein you are allowed to frequent lectures without being enrolled, paying tuition fees or by any other seeming scam.

    I know that some lecture theatres are big enough to slip in and out, but some have follow up seminars which can be equally as enlightening.

    You probably could sneak in, yes. Except, you'd not get any work marked, and you'd not get a degree.

    As much as I'm up for learning for the sake of learning, that seems a tad pointless.

    There has been a discussion on this very question on EducationGuardian Talk.

    Apparently, some unis do have 'open lectures' where people may go in and out at will even if not studying that particular subject.

    One man was saying that when he had the time after retiring shortly he would pop into his local uni for some free teaching. He even suggested that there might be more people over the age of 65 sitting in the lecture theatres than young undergraduates!
Were you ever put in isolation at school?
