Uni drop outs

Luckily for them that you'd bothered to learn Mandarin and Cantonese then?

I went to Oxford (SJ College) and lasted just over a term until I dropped out and came back to do my degree in Lpool. I wasn't ready for it at all as an eighteen yo, turned up with the wrong attitude altogether and despised it. I think if I'd left it a year (I grew up a lot as soon as I left school), it might have been alright. But I have no regrets. It pisses me off that they told me I missed the cut for a master's, though. "Course places already filled". I think they just can't handle rejection.

Or if you bothered to read the first line of my post to give you some sort of clue how comms were achieved.

I've got a first in Politics/Journalism and I've just finished my Masters degree in International Relations/Political Economics from Warwick Uni (which, as they'll constantly remind you is apparently a big deal). Has it helped me in search for work? Has it fuck.

 

Increasingly feeling like the biggest waste of my time.

Ok..

 

My actual class had THREE people in it, me, a fella called Mark that was SO overbearingly gay (10 x Louie Spence) it creeped me out a bit, and Dave, a fella from China whose actual name was Dave, alas, he couldn't speak English.

 

Uh... you communicated via the medium of gay body language? Otherwise I'm drawing a blank.

How about people who dropped out of.... attending their graduation ceremonies? I graduated last year but couldn't bring myself to attend the formalities. I made some friends and got on with the majority of my class but the whole thing was just a means to an end for me. I went to university with a pre-conception that students were annoying cunts and nothing I saw in three years made me change my mind.

Didn't drop out, but....

 

Fucked up my A-Levels

Rang Uni and asked nicely (seriously)

Got in

Was at Sunderland for 3 years

Graduated

Degree did fuck all.

 

That said, I enrolled on one course and graduated on a different one, it changed half way through, some lecturers during the first year were useless, one was an alcoholic, horrible time and a waste of three years.

 

I have a degree, it cost me

I wasn't massively fussed either way, but my mum wanted to go and it was no bother to me.

Because life at University is confined to lectures! Grow up!

Same here. I wasn't that bothered about it as I'd mentally checked out of uni after moving out of my student digs, but it was important to my parents.

 

We didn't even get a graduation ball as someone had embezzled the money.

Hated it - had to go through clearing, moved to fucking Bangor, and had awful homesickness. Worth it in the end, though.

I dropped out of the RSAMD when it was still called that after 1.5 years studying BA Production & Technical Theatre

The reason I dropped was mainly due to the amount of work I was getting that interfered with Uni and the fact I didn't feel like I was learning anything to be turning this work down that was in my field of study.

 

My job is all about experiance, I managed to work myself up to a manager for all the major UK festivals and for the last 2.5 years I have travelled to 33 countries as a Stage & Production Manager for a major U.S company. Several of these countries I have been to several places. It's been great fun going through lots of European countries to Russia which I loved, visiting places like Israel was a great experiance and now I'm on my way to the Bahamas as I type and I'll be there tomorrow...Atlantis here I come!

 

Although I still got qualifications from Uni, it wasn't a degree. It hasn't stopped me doing what I do.
