    I didn't know unis did reading weeks, only colleges. Is this where there are no lectures/classes and you are supposed to read up and catch up on things yourself? [my son and his friends just lie in bed till late and doss about all week ] !!

    Most reading weeks are development space so that you can take part in course relevant activities.
    An example would be a week of short courses or trips all scheduled over a week from which you are expected to choose a full week's choice.

    Generally being absent is regarded as a no no

    Pretty much all unis have reading weeks, but it's only for humanities students. I've yet to see any STEM students getting reading week here.
