    We get ages (like nearly 4 months) off for Summer.

    I have organised stuff to fill about a month but wonder if anyone could suggest stuff for the remaining three?

    Thinking about going abroad, does anyone know any good websites that provide student packpacker tours or something?

    I think that the uni year should be reorganised. It seems you are in overdrive for 24-28 weeks and then spend the rest of the year doing nothing.

    How about a new system incorporating three shorter semesters and 5-6 week holidays?

    In fact I would rather spend far more time at uni and get it done in two years. Apparantly you can do this at the unviersity of Buckinghamshire (the U.K's only private university).

    the 4month holidays are very convenient for ppl who want to work..they usually go abroat to america to earn money for their next year at Uni..

    why dont you travel arounf europe and visit all the interesting festivals like LoveParade in Berlin or similar stuff?? (but its fun only if you are with friends..)
