Uni Students Spend No More Time With Lecturers
University students spend no more time with lecturers than six years ago
"A poll of more than 9,000 students by the Higher Education Policy Institute found that first and second year undergraduates have, on average, 13.9 hours of timetabled tutorials, seminars and lectures a week.
Six years ago, when the institute carried out a similar survey, students had 13.7 hours a week.
Between 2006 and 2012, tuition fees in England trebled from £1,000 to £3,000. This autumn they will rise again – to up to £9,000 a year." (Guardian, 2012)
From September, all universities will be required to publish the amount of time students receive with lecturers for each degree and the employment outcomes of each course.
This really isn’t good enough, but let’s hope with the new requirements things will change for the better.
