    They definitely don't say Uni in North America. Not that you should care.
    It sounds a bit too australian (like barbie), I think. Even though it probably isn't.

    Fine, I'll waste even more of my life by using five syllables when I could easily get away with two. Would that make you happy?

    I'm starting to just call it school. It's just quicker. And makes me feel young and vibrant.

    School is still correct too

    Uni drives me mad too, I think its because its often used in this context:

    "i can't wait till uni do you knoh what a mean, i am gonna 'av a right laff, am studyin' party and alchol studies combined with sex educaton' man"

    My dad always calls it college which I also find annoying because to me college was where I did my A levels.
