    It's one Wednesday a week for 4 weeks. It means I'd have to leave the lecture early for the four Wednesdays and miss two workshops. I've messaged the lecturer and he has said it is up to me but I would be missing crucial information in the workshops. However, the High Flyers programme is there to build your skills, get you summer internships and ultimately to get you on a graduate scheme. I believe it goes on your transcript. They only accept 60 people from the university as well. What do you think?

    I don't see how that's relevant. Just snobbish

    Copy the lecture notes from your mates who attended( over a nice cup of coffee) or find a soft copy of the lecture you've missed from your uni portal(Blackboard, moodle, etc).

    Yes, I would do it. It will look good on your CV and to graduate employers and you can easily catch up on missed lectures etc.

    no it isn't - it is realistic - I am an employer - unless you have a BSc from a decent uni - you can pick and choose your employees. Derby is such a mediocre uni. It is about time the government woke uo to the fact the 90% of degrees are pointless and the uni of derby is hardly Yale is it

    I'm doing a vocational degree as a mature student. It's great that you're an employer but I'm looking for hands on work. I'm getting firsts in everything I do, I'm a programme rep, mentor for the university and I work for the National Trust. I don't feel you needed to add your snooty opinion regarding my university when it is the perfect place for me to achieve what I would like to do in life.

    I very much doubt that you are some highflying career defining employer if you're spending your time insulting people on tsr

    Missing a few lectures won't make a difference in the long run as long you take responsibility and catch up on your notes.

    I'd say do it, you may never have the chance to go on it again and if it boosts your CV even better. Don't Derby put their lectures on line? I heard that they do!
