I've spent today with my daughter who is applying to universities for 2019 entry (she's planning a gap year) and we have been at Lancaster University.
Part of the day was spent with current students in the course she is likely to take. One student - Lewis - said these things which I though it worth recording:
"I find I don't learn that much from my lectures, I learn far more from talking about it at my tutor groups afterwards."
"They record a lot of the lectures. Some people watch them rather than go to the lecture but it's also useful if you want to check on something and can watch it again later."
