    What uni do you go to? LJMU
    How often do you go out partying/clubbing? In first year I went out at least once a week, sometimes twice a week. Now it's not every week, prefer pubs to clubs now and would rather throw an all night party at mine than go into town.
    Do you have fun / are you happy? Uni is the happiest I have ever been yes, but it's also been some of the most stressed and at parts some of the loneliest.
    Have you made many friends? I've made great friends, 7 of which I now live with.

    How much work do you have to do? This really varies from course to course. so far I have had about 6 assignments to do this year and they all take a fair amount of time. A lot of my course is also practical based so it's a lot of time in the lab.

    And what year are you in? 2nd

    1) What uni do you go to? University of Bath
    2) How often do you go out partying/clubbing? Never
    3)Do you have fun / are you happy? Depends how you define that really. I spent quite literally every minute working - university maths, extra maths I'm interested in myself, extra computer science. But yes, I like it. I like it a lot.
    4) Have you made many friends? No. I've got one acquaintance in the maths lecture halls and I get on with my flatmates, but I don't have any "friends" as such. To be honest, with that other guy, I don't know his surname or hobbies. Yeah, thinking about things, that's a bit awkward.
    5) How much work do you have to do? Not all that much from the university, but I love maths enough to do extra
    6) And what year are you in? First year.

    Yeah, this is a bit awkward

      How often do you go out partying/clubbing?
      last term twice a week, this term once a week for money reasons
      Do you have fun / are you happy?
      Happy generally no, general feeling of disapointment from A level results + lots of depression episodes combined with feeling lonely when I'm sat by myself all alone. When I'm studying in lectures (I sit alone) or clubbing with friends I'm happy enough - grateful for the opportunity.
      Have you made many friends?
      no. Know many acquaintances though.

      How much work do you have to do?
      first term sod all, one or two pieces of courseworks of 3-4 hours work per week. Looking forward to second term with more work and far more interesting modules

      And what year are you in?
      1st year A&F

    What uni do you go to? Northumbria (Poly til I die!)

    How often do you go out partying/clubbing? Probably a few times a month. Mainly host parties at my place and just kick everyone out at 4am though.

    Do you have fun / are you happy? I'm very happy. There's so much to do beside clubbing too (societies, bars/restaurants to discover, volunteering, jobs etc.)

    Have you made many friends? My course has 24 people on and they're my second family. Made plenty of other friends too.

    How much work do you have to do? Varies per semester. Currently, everything is assignment based, so quite a bit, but not so much I want to scream.

    And what year are you in? 2nd year... on to the placement hunt!

    How often do you go out partying/clubbing? Probably about once a week, maybe more but I have a 9am start every weekday...
    Do you have fun / are you happy? Very happy.
    Have you made many friends? Yes. I get on really well with all my flat/block mates and we can all laugh together, and then people from my course are great too.

    How much work do you have to do? Quite a lot, I have weekly assignments, quizzes etc to do every week but as long as you manage to stay on top of it all it's not too bad, and I still have time to party

    How often do you go out partying/clubbing? Never but more because I don't want to than because I can't. The option is there but I'd rather do other social things
    Do you have fun / are you happy? Yes and no. A lot of my time is spent on my own, in the library, working, which is not much fun. But when I am not working and am with friends, playing sport, cooking and eating with friends, it is good fun,
    Have you made many friends? Yes quite a few, although mostly through church

    How much work do you have to do? I'm a geographer and typically work 35 hours a week,

    From what I can see, it's either party-till-you-die, either die-rather-than-party. Good to know -_- I seriously can't imagine partying every week, I'd be exhausted.

    Do you have fun / are you happy? I have lots of fun, but the uni is pretty much in the middle of nowhere so there's not much to do.
    Have you made many friends? Sort of. I do have a large group of people that I know and get on with but I wouldn't say we were friends in the same way that I was with the ones at 6th Form

    How much work do you have to do? Not too much. I feel like I can get a good balance between social and work

    How often do you go out partying/clubbing?Once or twice a week, usually once midweek, once at weekends depending on how much work I have/how organised I have been. Lots of work, probably only go out at weekend. Little work, maybe twice during week and once at weekends. Finished exams? every day haha
    Do you have fun / are you happy? More or less, the stress of work is always there and I do physics so there is usually quite a lot. Weekends are fun but being tired a lot of the time means you do get down and depressed more often. Maybe I should go out less...
    Have you made many friends? On my course, not many probably 2 or 3 actual mates. From halls, quite a few! about 10-15 people I would actually call friends.

    How much work do you have to do? Doing physics, quite a lot. 4 sheets of questions each week (about 1-1:30 hours each) plus spanish homework as I do that as an option. Also a lab report every couple of months and then exam revision is very busy. Working solidly all the way through exam period with about 3 weeks dedicated revision for my january exams.

    I go to Northumbria University.

    I rarely go out partying/clubbing - a) because I'd rather go to a house party, the pub or one or two good nights a month than out twice a week to do the same old and b) I don't have any ID, which is a problem with a slightly baby-faced 23 year old.

    I have plenty of fun - life isn't one big party, as I've learnt, so I have learnt to enjoy the other things I do at uni - volunteering, working at the SU, seeing my friends in class/ at societies.

    Put it this way, I don't do as much work as I should (although I am trying). I feel that it's because, since I started uni, I have grown to dislike my course (see below), and found happiness and potential to go into other aspects of the science field. If not, I may just work in a bar. It doesn't pay much but I enjoy the work - all my volunteering, including before uni, has taught me that it isn't all about making megabucks - I'd rather be just getting by and happy than a millionaire and miserable as sin.

    I am in my second year of Chemistry BUT this is my fourth year of University. I did a foundation year which covered the vast majority of "Health & Life Science" and "Engineering & Environment" courses offered here (which means I could have and wish I had done either Environmental Science or Food Science instead). On top of this, I had to resit first year of Chemistry.
    In short - this is my fourth of my now five years here!
