Hi all,

Just wondering what you do when you miss a lecture (illness or whatever)?
I'm coming in September from Australia and at my Uni all lectures are recorded and can be accessed afterwards.

Do you have anything like that there? Or are you pretty screwed if you are sick?

Some unis record lectures, otherwise you can ask friends from your course if you can borrow their notes

I study at the keele management school and although they don't record lectures, all lecture slides are placed online before the lecture for you to see

Some lectures take registers other don't. Depends on the course. Missed absence without reason may lead to discipline but that's in extreme circumstances. If you're ill or you have another genuine reason you just email the lecturer and you will be excused.

I do English at Keele and sweet fa is done if you miss lectures. Even in my recorded ones I've never been apprehended for missing a few a semester. Just don't take the mickey with it because they'll probably coin if you're not actually ill and are just being lazy. Don't miss the seminars and you'll be fine.

It depends on your course. All geology sessions- lectures, labs, fieldwork- are compulsory, and there's a register you'll need to sign. Biology labs are compulsory, along seminars and some schoolwide lectures, like ethics of animal testing, but not all sessions are recorded.

If there is an issue like illness or any other extenuating circumstances, email your school office to let them know, as they deal with your actual attendance. Email your lecturer and or your personal tutor, to maintain good communications, let them know you're not just skipping and to see if there are any resources you've missed that they'd be happy to give you. Your personal tutor may be able to offer you extra help if it's a more serious/ongoing concern.
