I like having the freedom to do what i want, and learning to look after myself. But, cos me and my flatmates all do very different subjects, i don't see them that much, so it can get kinda lonely. Whereas at home, there would always be someone else around.

Not particually. Im a second year and im just bored of being a student if im honest.

It had its novelty at first, I mean moving out of home was great, and having lectures was initially pretty cool, the bar crawls and parties etc were fun in the beginning, but by the end of first year I personally feel that it all became a bit repetitive and old.

Its not that im uninterested in my subject or anything like that, but ive just been in the education system for coming up 20 years and im just sick of it. Im Bored of lectures, bored of being taught, bored of exams and coursework and revision. Im bored of having no spare money ever.

Im starting to get bored of the otherside of uni life now aswell. Im sick of sharing a flat with 5 other people- I just want my own space. Im bored of hearing people talk about going out and getting drunk as though it were some kind of achievment. Its all just not very fun anymore.

It's okay.

First year seems to be A-level all over again and is pretty boring and unchallenging. Student life, however, is quite dull for me. I generally dislike the "student" behaviour that everyone attempts to live up to; i.e. the whole "Oooh i stole a traffic cone, I'm such a student, arn't I?".

I think if I had more lectures/workshops and some lab stuff, I'd be much happier.

However, bottom line is: It's just like being at sixthform, except you live there.

I absolutely love it ^^
Im surrounded by people i really love; both in my flat and around town; so theres always something to do, somewhere to go, someone to talk to... its very refreshing because that wasnt the case back home.

I do Fine Art, so thats something enjoyable i can do in my spare time, as well as in lectures and practicals, but i dont like the exams :P who does? haha... but they must be done

I get a tingle inside just thinking about it ^^

Uni life is like life anywhere and any time. It's like school or work - it's got its ups and downs. There are nice people and nasty people, some of it is interesting and fun, some of it is boring and gets you down.
Yeah, I like it here and now I don't want to leave, but that doesn't mean that it has been a whole bundle of laughs from start to finish.

Uni has been the loneliest and most depressing days of my life. And the work load is ridiculous i seem to be working day and night, weekdays and weekends! I loved my course before uni, now i despise it! So, no, not really.

I feel the same and I've only been in education for 14 years lol. The thought of postgrad training if I want to do what I want to do (teach) depresses me. I'm sick of being poor, I don't have time to do driving lessons and I'm bored of revision

I am no longer at uni, but no I didn't like uni life at all.
I'm not a fan of large groups of people. I have low tolerance levels, and cant really fake getting on with people I have nothing in common with. :o:
I don't like drinking, dancing blah blah or general studenty stuff.
I couldnt stand living in halls. Or in a town for that matter.
I had practically no lectures, it was ridiculously boring. And sharing a fridge drove me mad.

Ahem :o:

It's been okay, the course is interesting enough but there is a part of me that longs for the day when I can buy milk again with the confidence that when I place the bottle in the fridge I can return to find it just as it was rather than half-drunk
