Reading week... what subjects?

Whats all this about a reading week coming up? Do us psychologists get one? I have a feeling we don't.. lol :frown:
I think it's mainly for subjects where reading is actually necessary in large amounts....I think it would be English, Welsh, possibly Law..?

Week 6 is reading week for us engineers, so it's not just humanities and pther things.

Computer science on the other hand doesn't have a reading week, think it's the same for most sciences.

For some reason i thought we had a psych reading week last year... lectures seem to be planned out for every week this year though, so i guess not.

There's one in European Studies :biggrin:

And in Language and Comms, but thats usually the week before the semester ends.

An excuse for hot chocolates, lie ins, crazy nights out and "shared reading" (couple of chapters each, then pool knowledge :tongue:) with people on your course huh? Or just hard graft, ie... the raison d'être when it comes to being here (or so the mass conspiracy goes!) :biggrin:

Eng lit's on reading week, but not eng lang or comms, so I still have to go in for those two subjects. My three subjects didn't time their reading weeks together very well...!
Oh god i wish architecture students had reading week :frown:
