    Ok, forgive me for being thick, but am I or am I not right in thinking that possibly Wednesday is a designated 'sports' day for uni students when they have no lessons timetabled in, so they can do sports instead/ studying? I've found that a lot of university sports clubs seem to run during the day on Wednesdays.
    Any info would be much appreciated :yes:

    Generally yes. Though it's just the afternoons.
    However, it also depends on the degree. The more time intensive degrees will probably not have Wednesday afternoons off.

    It's the same for sixth forms isn't it? But, yeah, Wednesday afternoons.

    My school had Wednesday afternoon off for 5th and 6th years...well I say off, you were meant to do a 'Personal and Social Development' activity but for most of us that meant bumming about.

    afternoons mainly, when you play all your BUCS games


    depends on your degree, you may still have lectures in the morning, and depends on your department and if they care about you playing a sport or not as some view it as a waste of time so timetable lectures and classes on Wednesday afternoon

    It really depends, there are so many hours in the day and some departments have no other option but to timetable classes/labs/tutorials for Wednesday afternoons. If you are dead set on joining a sports club that has activities on Wednesdays (not all do) then you might be able to swap labs or tutorials, but lectures you'll probably just have to miss.

    Wednesday afternoons are for sports (societies) and at Trent there's usually other societies meeting up in the afternoons...which can make it hard to choose just one! Even at college we had free Wed afternoons to do whatever you wanted.

    At least at Lancaster I don't believe there's ever a case where someone can't arrange their timetable to leave wednesday afternoon completely free. I think it's probabily the same at most places, but will leave you very busy on other days in some cases!

    I seem to think this is the case, but am almost sure that it is only Wednesday afternoons at my university.

    At Birmingham it is for all programs in the afternoon (I think). The lecturers like the time off!
