I am in my second year of university and lectures are now in person and not online. I want to buy a dictaphone but there is too many to choose. I have a budget of £100. It needs to be able to record sound from a distance that sounds good. Any advice or help is appreciated. Thank you.

The whole point of dictaphones is that you dictate into them, so they're designed to work close-up and not at a distance (otherwise they'd pick up lots of background noise).

If you want to record a lecture, you need to ask the lecturer's permission first. They may allow you to leave the recorder at the front near where they're lecturing from.

thank you for the help. I have asked them and ones I've been looking at say they work well from a distance.

Usually, you need a permission to record the lecture, so in that case if the lecturer says yes, just ask them if you can place your dictaphone on their desk or something like that.
Dictaphones are meant to be used from a very short distance. literally 10-20cm from your mouth, most of the good once will have active noise cancelling and remove backgroundf noises = like the lecture ...
