    I'm going into third year and I hate uni. I love my course and I do pretty well. But I hate uni itself.

    Electing to spend three years of your life in an environment that you "hate" sounds decidedly passive-aggressive to me.

    The people in my course are immature and I don't connect with them. I feel like I'm still in high school.

    All the better for sticking out your course, aceing it and meeting new friends after uni.

    Easier said than done. I go back in a week and I'm absolutely miserable. To make it worse my lecturer volunteered me to help out with some freshers stuff tomorrow if I wasn't unpopular already . 😩😩😩

    Maybe join loads of societies and do stuff you find fun and then things will click into place..Do you live at home or if not do you get on with your housemates?

    It's difficult not living at/ near the uni...I don't mean to be preachy but maybe you need to find yourself...I obviously don't know you but if I was your friend I'd say f**k it just be yourself and do what you want and things will fall into place...

    I know I shouldn't care so much what other people think but I can't help it. As I said before everyone in my course are super immature and I feel like I'm in high school. It's horrible!

    She* and your right. I moved course in the first few weeks of first year so that didn't really help either.

    I know, I know; I just found the juxtaposition amusing.

    I'm also going into third year and not having the best time either - will this be the last year of your course? I'm in the same boat on the friends front, too; having tried my best, I haven't had a great deal of success! But, having seen a counsellor for a while due to problems both at home and at uni, we've decided that the best tack to take is to simply work as hard as possible, get the best marks possible, and make a fresh start after uni. Would you consider doing this, and, like me, perhaps not worrying so much about friendships? Who knows, if you start not caring about making friends, like-minded people might naturally come along and befriend you, and if not, well, you didn't care anyway!

    You're right, people can still behave quite immaturely at uni - I've found that at my uni too - but it's a time when everyone's trying to be as fun and interesting as possible and sometimes this can manifest itself in what seems like immature behaviour! I'm hoping that once I get into the grown-up world outside of uni, things will change, but for the time being, maybe you could join a society that more mature students might choose, like a meditation society or book club, if anything like that is up your street? I'm joining my uni's 'Mindful Society' this year which I hope will allow me to meet like-minded people; is there any society at your uni that you think like-minded people might attend?

    Do you have plans for after uni that you can start getting excited about to keep you motivated? If not, you could start making some plans and thinking of career ideas. Hope you feel better soon!

    I think that the turn of the third year is when a lot of people just want the year over and done with. This is my final year and I restarted at another uni once. I don't necessarily have the same problems with you as hating it, though I would like to get it over and done with!

    Have you tried any societies around? It might be cool to socialise with people that share your interests. If you don't fancy that then I can only reassure you with the fact that it's almost over and you'll be into the real world soon enough! :eek3:

    I hate uni in most aspects too, but as someone told me I'm there to get an education not to make friends

    that is possibly factor (to all people applying next year but reading this thread treat it as a warning.)

    As many people have said societies are good things like rock climbing or skiing are fun and you don't necessarily have to compete these sports are mostly based on personal performance. Or maybe pick up something you might be able to continue easily after uni (I mean you can ski and climb but if you live a way from a dry slope or mountains it's a little hard) like tennis. Or try something you've always wanted say octopush for example or join a club where the whole idea is to be stupid an immature like a zombie club or something or if you like vieo games there will possibly be a club for that as well just ask at the SU who knows you might have a fun 3rd year.

    After going to an open day for the one i was meant to be attending I decided against it , couldn't stand the immature nature of the people and the lecturers looked sheepish as only 6 people turned up for an open day.

    Diabolical place.

    Spend your life doesn't something you enjoy not 3 years that you can't get back being miserable.

    Sod that.

    I walked out and a week later got a phone call saying they'd be happy to offer me a place no thanks I'll stick to my Cabin Crew Career flying around the world for nothing is far more appealing to me than sat in a classroom being bored out my brains.
