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 /all uni's do reading week but not sure if every course does

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.
