    Only introverts or tight-fisted people will agree with you. The ability to learn a subject you love for 3 to 4 years, make a lot of friends and enjoy various experiences with them, and on average get a higher paying job compared to those without a degree, is all heavenly to me.

    I don't like the method of teaching at university. Sitting in 2 hours lectures to then write a 2000 word essay on something that was mentioned on one slide and have to study weeks in advance for one exam. I don't care what subject it is, that would definitely suck the fun out of it for me.

    I also dislike that, but it depends on what uni you go to. The top 2 I'm aiming to get into mostly revolve around very small classes with long discussions trying to bring the best out in you.

    The question I would ask, is why are you not doing well, especially when you have paid all that money?

    University is a land of opportunities. Opportunities for learning, opportunities for self improvements and discovery. Social opportunities and trying something completely new.

    When I was at uni I discovered the joy of mountaineering and made life-long friends. I didn't fair that well academically but you only get out what you put in. I am certainly better off for my time at uni.

    interesting question, what if u fall into the wrong crowd at Uni? Not all of them are 'prestige' as they look and sound. What if u have sh*t going on a home? then wat? yh u might of found 'joy', but everyone is different, some ppl may not like social situations or meeting new ppl

    There is only one person resonsible for falling in with the wrong crowd. Sh1t at home is another matter but there ate different types some of which are avoidable.

    Agreed. But university is a land of opportunities. It is a shame that so many let that pass them by and feel disenfranchised and let down.

    I think it is a bit of an indictment of our education system that spoon-feeds students the answers to pass exams. When they arrive at uni in the big wide world and have to stand on their own two feed, many folks are ill-equipped to handle that kind of independence and responsibility for their own actions.

    Personally, I find University stressful, trying to balance university lectures during the week, then university assignments and exams, balancing a social life which is now non-existing and a boyfriend who is amazing but unfortunately lives an hour away, plus then having to work on the weekends to get money and still be broke is really frustrating. The rich people or at least the ones whose parents are fairly well off to support them, get a bit more leeway as in not having to work part-time or worry about money and have time to do other things.
