    I'm starting uni in September and was just wondering whether uni is as 'fun' as everyone makes it seem? It may just be me but most uni students I talk to seem pretty chilled and relaxed and seem to have less stress than they did at A-levels!

    It depends on:

    The course
    The University
    The nature of mental health

    Some people stress over things others dont care about..etc

    But uni can be fun... if you join the right societies and make the right friends. Or it can be hell if you make enemies and run into bad people

    All in all one thing is fore sure, you will learn so much about your self and the real world during uni.

    Short answer: yes.
    Long answer: YES! But try to find people you actually identify with in some way. This is unlikely to be the housemates you have in first year, but unless you have really obscure interests (and refuse to speak to anyone else) there will be some people who you can get along with just fine.

    Thanks for the response! Only issue is I won't be moving out..do you think that'll affect the chances of making new friends?

    Living at home will make it more difficult to make friends straight away, but you'll probably end up speaking to people from your course and any societies you join. I know one person who lived at home for the whole degree and I think he would have benefited a lot, particularly in the first year, if he hadn't.
