    I might be going on holiday for the first 10 days back of university, I'll be going into my second year.

    Would I get in trouble? Or will they not care if I tell them?

    Does your uni course have an attendance requirement or are there any assessments that week? It's probably not great missing introductory lectures but i can't say you'd definitely get in trouble.

    Going into second year isn't too bad - at least you know your course and the people on your course. It's down to you how much it effects you - depends how much you'll miss and what not. At the end of the day - the university doesn't really care if you're there or not, it's your decision - what they do care about is their grades, attendence and statistics. They have to reach so much - so as someone has said, if there is an attendence quota then it could be bad.

    Why not just go 10 days earlier? Or reading week, Christmas or Easter?

    Given that you get around half the year off they wouldn't be happy if you told them you were going- and it does seem silly to go away during term time when you do have so long off.
    However whether you actually get into trouble would depend on your university policy- some are more strict than others about attendance.

    you win't get EC if you miss anything important because you should know the term dates you won't get in trouble but it's not a good idea.

    I wouldn't. Given that second year actually counts toward your degree, I'd stick to the months and months you have off uni the rest of the year?...

    You no doubt have AT LEAST 4 months (probably nearer 5-5.5) of the year off of uni, and you choose the first 10 days of a year that counts towards your degree to go on holiday?
