    but if you must, just you know, casually ask them what they are studying.

    Successful conversations rely on a few things, at least for me

    Humour: this can be puns, one liners, references to pop culture/news, pointing out funny stuff you see, dry humour, sarcasm, playful insults or any other form of joking to make each other laugh

    Flirting: if youre considering them as a romantic intrests you can still be a little bold if its the first convo and compliment what they wore at least and ask where they got it when they got it how they got it etc etc

    Interested: Just ask questions about them and ask about where they learnt stuff, what they do at work/school/holidays/studying for

    failsafes include asking how they are in general/weekend plans/what they want to do when older but dont talk about the weather ffs

    About yourself: Sure youre asking tons of questions and learning stuff about them but make sure you tell them about you too, it can be done through anecdotes, a little self deprivation or just blatantly saying stuff
