    I'm in my third year out of four years and I'm underwhelmed by university. Yes it's good for socialising and moving away from parents and transitioning into adult life, but the academic side in my case has been rubbish. I feel like all lecturers are so unhelpful and all lectures are so boring. Yet £9k per year is spent and I'm in lectures or seminars on average only 2 hours a day. It is ridiculous.

    But thats the problem with the UK. At my school it was always geared towards going to university but they never informed me about what else I could do which would be a more fulfilling part of my time.

    Lecturs and seminars only constitute a small proportion of your £9000 a year spend/loan. It also covers library facilities including subscriptions to journals, IT facilities, sports facilities, subsidised catering and transport, funding for societies etc. If all you're doing is the bare minimum of attending lectures/seminars and not using all of the facilities you're paying for, then you maybe need to try and widen your perspective.
