37 Things You Won’t Miss About University

As recent university graduates, we can hand on heart say, that you will desperately miss university when it’s over…

You’ll miss Freshers week, long holidays, your friends, day time drinking and using the weather as an excuse to stay in bed and not go to lectures.

Nevertheless, whilst your brain will be filled with plenty of fond memories of university life, there are certain things you will absolutely NOT miss about being a student…

1. Sitting in lectures with a hangover so bad that you genuinely feel death would be a welcome escape.

2. The unfathomably long periods of time between student loan instalments and trying to make £1,000 last for three months.

3. Dealing with Student Finance in general.
