hmm i see. Sometimes the lectures are pretty pointless as lecturers read off slides.

Yeah there's lots of bad technique in HE

I used going in as a reason to spend that day being productive. I had roundabout an hour's commute so it woulda been easy for me to get into bad habits!

In first year I missed quite a few lectures - at the start I attended all because I was eager, but then I found out the lectures were recorded. Second year I attended probably even fewer lectures, because I live at home and I had like an hour in a day, which to me is pointless when I can then just listen to lectures at home. I went to all seminars - occasionally I'd miss one or two - simply because they took attendance. Unfortunately, they care a lot more for third year attendance to both lectures and seminars, so now I attend all, including the 9ams in the freezing cold while my lecturer reads off the slides stuff WE'VE ALREADY COVERED.

I find many are not worth going to and all of them are recorded so I know most do not attend. I have a commute in every day that takes just over an hour. Wednesday I only have one lecture, so spending over 2 hours traveling up to university for a lecture (which usually lasts less than 40 minutes) is something I don't do thank you very much (£12 ticket £6 parking £7 taxi are also big reasons not to go to it). The rest I always go to, especially since there are no lectures on a Thursday for me.

I’m in a pretty similar situation actually. However for one of my modules I’ve been lacking and haven’t gone to the lecture since week 2 but went to nearly all the seminars. Hopefully I can work on that

I don't miss any seminars, usually found them really useful for bouncing off ideas.

I'm really bad for missing lectures though, all of mine are recorded so I prefer working from home and listening to them. Probably not the best idea though since the lecturers make the effort of showing up.

I'm in first year and missed 1 lecture so far. I was waiting for an Amazon delivery...
I'm going to try not to miss any more though.

it can be disheartening for staff but end of the day we get paid regardless

Some in our place refuse to upload recorded ones if there is a pattern of non-attendance. Dunno how i feel about that but I incline to it being a bad move

First year of uni i didn't really miss any tbf, i was quite on the ball, however, this year, with commuting, my brother having brain damage, my dad having a lung disease and caring for both of them while i also suffer with a disease and work 24 hours a week, i messed up my attendance so far this year. Those situations in my life isn't an excuse to not go in though, its all down to me and i should be going in. But i know i'll pick it up in second term.

Don't go to uni and not turn up, its pointless. You'll get into a bad habit and fail.

Almost a whole semester. The lecturers were seriously bad and I didn't learn a single thing, so I found it more productive to study the modules I missed on my own.

I didn't miss many, but I also didn't apply myself as well as I could to many of those lectures. I struggled with fatigue, concentration and motivation.

Hi there,

Personally I missed no lectures and seminars. It's a personal choice but I would check whether your attendance to lectures/seminars are monitored as consistently missing them might be flagged by the university and this can affect your studies. As others have said, it's also a bad habit to get into.

I found both my lectures and seminars useful, so I attended almost all of them (except for when I was ill).
