I think so, you're all adults. I never went for a drink with my own lecturers but I did go for drinks with lecturers, usually through societies that staff were allowed to be part of. They're usually pretty well-off if they're established too, so make sure they get the first round 😂

Most unis will discourage socialising between students and staff but it depends entirely on the context.

My lecturers have come for drinks with societies, so groups of students.

If it’s just the two of you, it’s probably not banned (depends on your uni’s rules on staff-student relationships etc) but probably discouraged. Personally I wouldn’t feel comfortable if a lecturer asked me.

Depends.
their are exceptions & if your all happy to go then yea why not....

I went for one in my final year once, it was a group project and we had gotten to know our group supervisor reasonably well, he was a nice and it was an organic one off trip for a chat after a long day, was quite nice tbh. But this was quite unusual.

As a PhD student I find myself in the precarious postion of going to the pub (pre-covid) with other researchers who teach & also with undergrad/masters students from sports teams, honestly your all adults do what you want, just keep uni work professional.

I've been for drinks with lecturers, but it was as part of a group and as a postgraduate. I would be a bit cautious about going for drinks alone with a lecturer though, depending on the circumstances.

I would often go to the local pub with my lecturers, guest speakers, and fellow postgrads (as one big group). I wouldn't have gone if it had been a one-on-one thing.
