Hello, Pit

I know this has probably been done to death, but since I'm not the only one going to university next year (later this year, in fact) I'd like to dedicate a thread to asking questions about life in university.

Through stalking people's profiles, I see many born in 1988-89, and going to college.

I'd like to know a few things, especially if you go to university in the UK:
1) How many lectures do you have a week and how much free time do you have? Is it all down to how well you manage your time?
2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?
3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?
4) The stereotype is that students are always poor, even if they have a job. How true is this? Or does this depend on the individual and how well he/she manages their munneh?

Thanks to everyone who contributes!

1) depends, I have the least I know doing Classical history but sciencey students get tons of lectures and labwork
2) I find time to practice and no-one really worries about noise till about 12ish (on campus, off campus may be different.
3)cook for myself, but most Uni's offer a differing variety of options
4) its a stereotype, but do prepare to scrimp and look for bargains.

1. I had two lecture classes but they were only 2 hours and they were fun classes. I had a pretty good amount of free time, depending on how much I wanted to practice.
2. I go to a music school so practicing is homework. Sometimes the neighbors are loud but I am always courteous with my amp usage.
3. You could do either, but I usually eat in the school cafe.
4. Yea, i'm usually pretty poor.
#4
1) depends on your course, in 1st year I had 12/13 1 hour lectures in a week plus 6-9 hours of labs.

2) I lived at home so it wasn't an issue

3) You have to cook or buy.

4) This depends on how much money you saved before uni and how much your parents give you, or loans/grants, because you can't earn enough working to be "flush" as it were, as a student.
#5
1) Depends on the course. I have about 8 hours lectures a week, because I do English. Science subjects can get up to 30 or so. But generally, the less hours of lecture time, the more hours of reading time. Of course, the doss subjects have more free time. Generally it's all about time management.

2)I can usually play guitar, but we're not allowed to after a certain time. Didn't stop the tool in the flat downstairs playing his at about 2am though.

3) Depends if you're catered or self-catered. I think if you're catered you may get meals in your halls or be given a certain amount of money to spend on food in the uni refectory. It probably all depends on what halls and what uni and so on.

4) Depends on how you manage your money, if you've got a job, what your accomodation costs are, how much financial support you can get (loan, grant, bursary) and how generous your parents are. If you're careful you shouldn't be too bad, but you obviously won't have much money for luxuries.
#6
1) How many lectures do you have a week and how much free time do you have? Is it all down to how well you manage your time?
I have 10 but I know people who have 20+, and yes, time management is essential/


2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?
I play minimally anyway, and never use an amp except at practice.


3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?

I have my own house so...


4) The stereotype is that students are always poor, even if they have a job. How true is this? Or does this depend on the individual and how well he/she manages their munneh?
Manage your money and you'll get by. You'll need a job.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

1) How many lectures do you have a week and how much free time do you have? Is it all down to how well you manage your time?
~ I'm in Uni 3 days a week, 3 lectures related to my course, 1 that's a pile of poopy

2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?
~No time for practice, I spend a lot of time socialising with my 2 friends at their house, not that I could have brought my bass here on the train anyway ^__^;

3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?
~There's a caféteria but we mostly sort our own food out. I don't mind cooking though because my bedsit has it's own kitchen.

4) The stereotype is that students are always poor, even if they have a job. How true is this? Or does this depend on the individual and how well he/she manages their munneh?

1) depends on your course and other hobbies. free time was virtually non-existent.
2) little time to practice if you join societies. if your course is 15-24 hours/week and you don't really do much else, you'll probably have plenty of time. i know my flatmates spent a lot of time doing nothing. as for noise pollution, the walls are paper thin and everyone can probably hear when your guitar is unplugged.
3) it depends if you go for catered accomodation or not. lunch you always have to get yourself but you can cook for yourself in self-catered accomodation. i wouldn't go for catered as it's pretty pathetic imo. haven't tried it though but apparently, if you miss a meal you have to buy your own even though you've already paid for your catered-for meal.
4) you're going to be in debt unless you have a job. you're still going to be poor unless your parents are rich. you're going to be in debt when you get a house, put it in perspective.

Honestly as long as you'e not an impulsive buyer you'll be fine

If I didn't buy so much early on I could afford far more food than I actually need. I recommend making a lot of meals with things like pasta or rice because it's just easier ^__^;

Basically, you should be able to afford accomodation, food, beer and clothes. Hopefully you can get other small individual purchases. But don't expect to be able to afford that new guitar or those totally mega cool £100 jeans.

It can get pretty bad if you're not careful. My flatmate had to choose between food and beer because he couldn't afford both. He chose beer.

Well, I can only think of three staple foods: pasta, rice and potato. Thank god for the potato being in-fucking-credibly versatile.

I don't drink, I've had the same clothes for 2 years now, I'd never spend that much on any item of clothing anyway.

But no new guitar? I really wanted to build my own axe...I'll save pennies.

Another tip: don't use the big supermarkets for food if you can. Try and find some ethnic shop for stuff like rice and pasta, a good greengrocer's and a good, cheap meat store (either a local butcher or one in a market). These are usually better quality and cheaper than a supermarket. In Leeds there's a huge indoor market and everything's excessively cheap. So try and find something like that.

I'm not in a University

But I am in community college, and I gotta say it really depends on what classes you're taking and how many.

Obviously time management is essential.
I've got a part time job which aids the grants I got, but community college is pretty cheap to begin with. I'm sure it's a lot harder for a University and you might need the help of your folks, and maybe some loans.

But all my University friends still live at home and save a hell of a lot of money.

I'm Irish but it's not that different.

1) How many lectures do you have a week and how much free time do you have? Is it all down to how well you manage your time?
2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?
3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?
4) The stereotype is that students are always poor, even if they have a job. How true is this? Or does this depend on the individual and how well he/she manages their munneh?

1) I have only about 18 hours of lectures etc a week. If you manage your time well then you should have plenty of free time. If I have an hour or two between lectures I tend to go to the library and try to get some study done. You can put in an excellent days work and be finished by 6 if you like and head to the gym/sport practise/ whatever and then be in the pub by 9.
You have as much free time as you'd like, but you'll probably find heaps of fun and interesting stuff to fill it with.
2) I have more time to practise guitar than I've ever had before (not that that's saying much ). I usually just play my acoustic in University and as two of my flatmates also play they don't mind.
3) I cook for myself most of the time unless I go out for a meal for some reason. Sometimes my gf or my Italian genius cook flatmate make me food.
4) It depends on the individual. I'm living on the money I earned over the summer but I do find myself pretty broke. Alcohol cuts into the budget considerably. i spend about 60 euros a week.

Pasta comes in many forms, but it's mostly cooked the same way.

The potato comes in few varieties, but there's nothign you CAN'T do with it: baked potato, mashed potato, boiled potato, fried potato, thinly-sliced fried potato (ie. crisps), yesterday's potato microwaved, potato guest starring in soup, potato salad...

Pasta can be cooked loads of different ways. Al dente, with salt, without salt, with sauce, without it, with pesto, with meat, with eggs.

Pasta al dente with a load of salt then some eggs, cheese, chilli and meatballs is the best meal ever.
Also, omelettes are awesome.

I have lots of free time, it's ridiculous, even as a full time student (4 classes)

2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?

I currently live at home and not sure if I will transfer to a Uni where I will live on campus, so playing is not an issue

3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?

I live at home.

I have a fair few hours a week, i do biochemistry and have a good few lectures and up to 6 hours of labs each week, but you do still find time
2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?
i don't get round to practising much, but that's more due to laziness, my flatmates don't seem to mind when i do
3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?
i live by the 2 p's, pizza and pasta, they get me by but sometimes i have to cook some veg or real food, it's not too hard

The main problem moneywise is that beer is the number one priority, which can be expensive. I'd imagine any teetotal students would be loaded compared to their friends, or at least have nicer things.

And if you're doing an engineering type course, which I see you've applied for, you'll have a fair few lectures, especially once you get into 2nd 3rd year.

This leads to my other bit of advice, enjoy the first year as much as you can, no real pressure so just make sure you pass everything but don't bother working too hard

As for the money issue I have a flatmate who couldn't travel home for 2 weeks because he couldn't afford the train ticket having spent all his money on booze and didn't want to tell his parents that he'd been haemorrhaging money so he said he was studying and stayed up and waited till they sent him money for the next week.

1) How many lectures do you have a week and how much free time do you have? Is it all down to how well you manage your time?

This semester I have 21 hours of class/labs. I have weeks when I'm swamped with work and weeks where I don't have a significant amount... I don't really know how to measure my free time..

2) What about guitar playing? Do you find time to practice? Does your amp bother your roommates or neighbours?

I find it hard to have time to practice. I maybe get one solid practice session a week if I'm lucky, otherwise I pick up the guitar for a few minutes here and there.

3) Food: are you served lunches, or do you have to cook/lurk for burger joints yourself?

I cook everything myself, buying food at school is a big money drainer.

4) The stereotype is that students are always poor, even if they have a job. How true is this? Or does this depend on the individual and how well he/she manages their munneh?

I only ever buy groceries and pay rent/utilities.. so I guess I am poor. I worked my ass off during the summer, but I think I'll have to get a part time job soon. I'm like you though... I never buy anything unless I absolutely have to.

1.) 12 hours ish a week plus labs (3hr slots, avg. 1 a week) Reasonable amount of free time if you manage it well, which is COMPLETELY up to you.
2.) I don't really have time to practice that much, could possibly make some but have other stuff to concentrate on right now. Amp occasionally bothers people if I have it a bit louder than normal. Rarely though.
3.) Cook for myself (buy some multivitamins lol)
4.) I'm not exactly rich, can't always buy stuff when I want it, but I have enough to live on and go out once in a while. You could blow £200 on a lapdance and a bottle of vodka if you wanted to, then you would be poor.

I go to a university in Upstate NY, but I think most everything is the same as in the UK.

I have 4 classes, 2 of which meet for 50 minutes, 3 times a week, and 2 that meet for 75 minutes, twice a week. Labs for hard sciences eat up a 3 hour block in the afternoon once a week. I'm very good at managing my time, and I have a lot of free time. In my schedule, class usually goes from around 9 am to 12 or so, and homework and reading takes maybe 2 hours a day most days if you like to keep up on your work. Discipline is really important.

I have more time to play guitar at college than I had at home. Just try to be considerate with your playing, and observe any quiet hours. Tell your neighbors to have you shut up if you are annoying them, and that will keep you on good terms. Don't bring a 100W amp and turn it up all the way. I run a 15W at maybe 4/10 and its fairly loud, but not annoying.

I have a full food plan, I can go to our cafeteria and swipe a card and get food whenever I'd like. This varies from school to school, but usually freshman are given a pretty easy food plan....you won't have to fend for yourself.

I work about 10 hours a week, and I spend a lot of money. Alcohol/ drugs are killer on your budget if you do them. 2 bottles of liquor a week will empty your wallet quickly. If you don't do either of these, you're probably fine.

Just a heads up, colleges will send you a ton of information once you're accepted, and iof you have any questions, they are really helpful. Its almost impossible to not be ready for school by the time you get there. Just read everything they send you.

I hope I helped. If you need more, PM me.

1)I have about 16 hours of lectures a week and a couple hours of labs, it results in me only have a couple hours scheduled to be in class each day so it's pretty easy to work my way around.
2)It's difficult to keep up a consistent practice schedule for my bass playing like it did in high school/during the summer when I had hardly any work to do, but I still find plenty of time to play and at least keep my level of skill alive. Being in a band is a different thing because you have to make a lot of calls on your priorities and it might not go over too well with your bandmates.
3)I cook for myself most of the time, my mom still lives only an hour away so I'm lucky enough to have a decent homecooked meal at arms reach whenever I might need it.
4)I spend most of my money on food/alcohol and get most of it by working during the summer/winter and stretching it out throughout the semesters in between, so I usually find myself with enough money, but any large expenses, like instruments/vehicles, are pretty much completely out of the question.

I'm in New Zealand studying law and commerce - 4 papers a trimester for 5 years.

1.) 3 lecture hours + 1 tutorial hour per paper = ~16 contact hours. I'd probably put in 20-25 hours non-contact on that. Far less free time than at high school.
2.) I don't really have time to play in a band, so I just play guitar causally now, good for relaxing.
3.) I live at home, but if I want food at Uni I have to buy it from the horrible and overpriced shops on campus, or go to a cafe, depending where I am.
4.) I live at home so I'm fine for money, however students are generally quite poor in my experience.

1) My course was in drama, so although we only had about 11-12 hours a week of actual lessons, we had to rehearse all practical projects in our own time. In the run-up to performance exams this could be a good 40 hours a week. Whatever you're doing, managing your time is pretty essential.

2) I spent 2 out of my 3 years living with other musicians so nobody minded at all. Finding time to practice was a bit tougher, but I got by. It all depends on what else you're doing, such as playing sports or joining societies (something I strongly suggest you do) and how well you manage your time.

3) You can get catered halls, but this is usually only for the first year of uni because after that most people have to move into private residences, so sooner or later you'll be cooking for yourself. Local markets are great, and if there's a Lidl near your uni then you're sorted, it's so cheap

4) You won't have that much money, however you approach it, but you won't starve or freeze as long as you don't act like an idiot and blow all your cash. My personal advice is not to get a job unless you absolutely have to, because there's so much stuff to do at uni that you'll miss out.

If you want one bit of advice for uni, it'll be this-Do everything, everything, that you can possibly get involved in while you're there.

If you want to mix and meet new people and do new things it's a good way to do it.
To be honest I find that sports are better though. People on sports teams tend to be much more integrated than people in societies.

Course! You don't have to joni sports teams if you don't want to! There's no bligationa t all, you're completely free to do whatever you want. Often in Freshers Week, or the first couple weeks of term, the sports clubs will hold taster sessions, where you can try something out for free. So if you're at all curious into any sport (anything! I picked up Fencing!) you may as well give it a go. But of course, if you don't wanna, no problemo

There's tons of other societies though, not just sports. Seriously whatever you like doing, there'll be a soceity for it. And if not, set it up!

I'm terrible at all sports, and I was kind of hoping that once I'm done with school, I'll have no obligation to do them ever again unless I want to...

I'm terrible too. The only thing I'm good at is swimming so I joined the water Polo team and I'm going to join a martial art next semester.
There are usually things like Ultimate Frisbee, Trampoline and Dodgeball that are just people messing about and socialising.

Ultimate Frisbee? Sounds BA

As far as I can see it's mainly played by hooting dickholes
