Whether it's from the finance services or the university itself, should I be expecting them to ask to be drug tested?

I wouldn't think so? Unless your course has some weird specific requirement (pharmacy?) but no, it's certainly not standard.

Highly unlikely, why would they?

I've not experienced this before or know of anybody that has... However, if you are suspected or reported for taking drugs you could be asked to perform a drugs test, and this might be course specific (medicine, nursing, pharmacy).

I highly recommend not to take any illegal drugs, and then you have no need to worry

I doubt it, unless you've given them a reason to need to do one.

I'm guessing you're worried because you take illegal drugs.

I don't know for sure but I'd imagine the answer is no. Only people who were well-known junkies were ever drug tested at my school, I doubt the case is any different for Uni.

If the drug you are taking is making you paranoid then you probably should try to quit. I have no issue with weed at all but if it's always giving you negative effects, that's your body telling you it doesn't like it.

In my four years at uni, I was never drug tested.

And given the drug culture at university...they'd be testing a lot of people

The majority of people at uni do weed, ecstasy or ket if they tested people they'd have no students left :lol:

No... you won't be drug tested at university. Funny question, though.
