no secretaries here either as far as i know - and its a large campus - instead they have 'opening times' where they will always be around.
i have a little bit of a worry. every Thursday i have a journalism lecture at 9, i went to it for the first 3 or 4 weeks fine. then around the 5th week i missed it, went the week after, didn't go last week and due to what feels like the start of an inflammed ear i've put off going today as well.
put simply, i'm not fucked am i?
i'm a fresher in my first semester and to be fair they do paste the lecture notes up on their portal, but i feel really guilty about missing these few lectures.

You're probably not fucked, no. But you are giving yourself a bad reputation by missing lectures. As a goodietwoshoes who goes to all her lectures, my tutors feel the need to vent their frustrations at me about students who miss half a semester of lectures and don't bother trying to catch up.
You should really get in touch with your tutor and just say that you weren't well the past few weeks, tell them you've got the notes off the portal, and ask if there is anything else you need to know that was mentioned in the lectures.
Then again, at my uni (tiny campus), the tutors don't have secretaries and I can just walk into their office at any time for a chat about shit. I hear this isn't the standard practice at most universities?
as far as i know this is the only lecture/seminar i have where there is no register, so as far as i know they don't know about my small situation. especially since i have not been sent any emails or anything like that.
thanks for your help.
