17 Skills You Actually Have Mastered While You’ve Been at University

As a student, the skills you pick up won’t just be academic.

1. The ability to tolerate large volumes of coffee.

Assuming your Friends or Gilmore Girls addiction hadn’t already taught you that, of course.

2. But also the art of taking a nap right in front of your lecturer in class.

3. Going to the supermarket with only a tenner but leaving with as much as you can buy from it.

4. Using a microwave, toaster, and kettle to make absolutely everything.

Ovens are too much effort.

7. Finding every event on and off campus where there’s free stuff.

8. Being able to use your phone for anything and everything.

I mean, there are apps for ordering takeaways, booking a taxi, online shopping, and dating. Not making the most of them would be irrational.

9. Speaking of dating, you’re now a natural at flirting.

10. And at fitting two people in a single bed.

You’d never be able to fit a double bed into the tiny rooms at uni anyway, so students all over have adapted to a new habitat.

11. Developing a unique style of dancing.

12. Procrastinating in a way that can only be described as “productive.”

13. Avoiding laundry right up until you have no clean clothes left.

14. Always knowing when there’s free food on offer.

It’s like you have a sixth sense.
