10 White Lies Every Lecturer Told You at University

It’s safe to say you’d be nothing without your lecturers. But every now and then they say things that simply aren’t true.

1. “Of course you need to spend £950 on text books for this term.”

And you pick them up like three times.

2. “You must attend this lecture, it’s vital to your studies.”

Your lecturer stands next to a PowerPoint for an hour and asks vulnerable class members questions to see if they’ve been listening.

3. “First year is just as important as the rest.”

You do amazingly well in first year and at the end your lecturer is all, “yeah, sorry, it doesn’t count.”

4. “This will only last an hour.”

An hour and ten minutes later you’re still stuck there. Do they not realise you have an extensive amount of napping to do?

5. “I’ll be as constructive as possible in your essay feedback.” 

You actually want to cry reading some of your bad feedback, it’s a good thing vodka exists.

6. “Referencing is easy.”

Riiight.

7. “You only have to do one group presentation a year.”

Oh and five other little ones.

8. “We do not have favourites.”

Meaning they do and you’d best buy them some chocolates at the end of each term.

9. “This will be your most important essay at university.”

*until next year.

10. “Make sure you do the reading for this week’s seminar, it’s relevant to our discussion.”

You sweat over reading the chapter and it gets mentioned for no longer then five minutes.
