Are they mad? Next year we’re going to have lectures and seminars starting at 8.30am

Think your 9am’s bad? Next year, it’ll be an 8.30

Deluded uni bigwigs have announced changes to next year’s teaching schedule – and they’re bringing in 8.30am starts.

Teaching days will be extended to between 8.30 and 5.30, with all lessons being scheduled on the half hour.

Yes, that’s right, you’ll be expected to be up and working BEFORE 9am.

And it gets worse.

Look forward to seeing this sight before it’s even reached 9am.

On Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays there will also be a 5.30pm-6.30pm lesson slot, although this “will be used as a last resort for large groups, when no other options are available.”

Unless you’re a repeat undergraduate or taught postgraduate, Wednesday afternoons will still be kept free for sports with lessons finishing at 12.30.

But will you still get in the team if your 5.30 lecture overruns and stops you from training?

The uni insists that they will be “checking for problems or issues throughout the pilot year and are putting a number of measures in place to help make these changes work for everyone.”
