A more student friendly timetable spread over no more than four days in the week and where possible avoids irregularities. Ideally a timetable that was more condensed to make it easier for commuters and students who work.
Currently the timetable is both confusing and difficult to work around with bi-weekly tutorials, and monthly workshops, on top of being spread out over 5 days! The timetable, in short, can be described as a burden for many students.
It mostly impacts students who have to work to afford their studies, as many employers won't employ students with such a rigid timetable. As a result students often miss out on job opportunities, or worse, students will skip lectures to attend work as they simply cannot afford not to. And this isn’t something we should be promoting. Many students commute in to the university and often they cannot afford to come in for a 2 hour lecture every day for 5 days a week, due to ever increasing bus fares. Many other universities across the country have already implemented similar policies to help improve student life and I think Bangor should do the same.
