I'm helping my DS look at courses on the web in his chosen discipline.

Was horrified to hear friend's daughter at highly regarded course ( diff. choice to my DS) at Birmingham has hardly any lectures or tutorials. Students complain - no real change, slight concession.

Back in the day, I had a full timetable.

My Ds will need some structure - how do we find out about their teaching timetables?

All very interesting - thank you. I'm afraid I have not been convinced by all the arguments although all so well put and I want to be understanding of hard pressed lecturers.

Luckily, my DS wants to do Engineering where timetabling appears to be different. Although, my DD will probably choose a discurssive degree of some type (a few years away yet) and I will have to help her look closely at info. provided.

thanks to alreadytaken - when I have time I will look at this website.
