    Question Alright to skip first week?

    Hello first yr uni student here,

    Due to some personal issues which I might not be able to attend the first week of uni, I was wondering, since that tutorial classes do not start until week 2, can I just skip the first whole week?

    Is uni lecture placed online given that they already started in first week?



    Thanks.

    No, not necessarily. Your lecturer might opt out of recordings or the recording system might not work or your lecturer might not use the audio visual system so the recordings are useless. Lecture material should be available on Moodle though.

    You can certainly skip the week - no one will force you to go to uni. Whether you will miss out on anything of relative importance, is unknown.

    Alright to skip first week?

    Not sure if it's just me or, at least I always feel like the course is missing sth if I skip the first week.
    Some courses require students to do some sort of in-class tests (maybe worth ~3% of your course mark) during the first week (yes I'm being serious and this applies to some crazy accounting courses) and again it's up to u to attend or skip it
