Can you audit lectures at Sheffield? Watch
As an international student, I don't know what the situation is at UK unis (Sheffield in particular). At my uni in Canada, I could audit as many classes as I wanted (i.e. just show up to the lectures, sit and listen, take notes, etc., but not do the assignments or take the tests). Some of the profs were even pleased when students would attend their lectures without being signed up because it meant they were interested.
Is this permitted? Encouraged? Frowned upon? Will anyone even notice?
Thanks in advance for any responses
But you can do it if the lecture is big enough; meaning they won't realise there's a spare if it's a 500 person lecture.
For some courses like MLT ones or ones in the hospital it will be a massive no. For something like Engineering or Biology you shouldn't have any problems.
