Wednesday afternoons cleared of compulsory lectures

Rated 5/5 (4 people). Log in to rate.

In response to a number of students declaring that they find it difficult to represent the University of Hertfordshire in competitive sport, I am pleased to announce that I have successfully lobbied the University time-tabling team to clear all student time tables of compulsory lectures on Wednesday afternoons for undergraduate students.

Towards the end of the last academic year it became apparent that a number of students were unable to get involved in competitive sports at the University because of a clash in schedules between the Athletic Union and lectures. I spoke to a number of you about your concerns and took this forward to the University, explaining that the time table clash was preventing a number of students from getting involved in co-curricular activities.

Following a number of discussions with the University and Deputy Vice Chancellor Ian Campbell, I am pleased to announce that there will no longer be any compulsory lectures on Wednesday afternoons. This exciting news means that you will now be able to get involved in a greater range of activities at the University without the risk of missing any important lectures. The changes also mean that Student Reps can attend programme committee meetings at suitable times.

Moving forward, I will continue to liaise with Senior Management at the University to ensure that student participation in extra-curricular sports and activities remains high, helping you to get the best experience possible while at University.

If you have any queries, concerns or questions about what this means for you, feel free to drop me an email at vp.activities@hertfordshire.su.
