14 Times University Didn’t Seem Worth £9,000 a Year
It’s just £9000 a year* – oh boy!
*not including printing, travel, textbooks, or frankly anything you need to actually do work.
1. When your lecturer wastes 20 minutes trying to work out how to turn the computer on.
Evidently, that wasn’t covered in their PhD.
2. And then just reads off of the PowerPoint slides.
*Could have just stayed in bed*
3. Or just makes you watch a YouTube video.
Paying 9k a year for my lecturer to play a YouTube video 👏👏👏

4. When you have to pay for printing.
And yet handing in paper copies is made compulsory.
5. When the library doesn’t put the heating on during Arctic conditions.
6. But still charges extortionate prices for a coffee from the vending machine.
This whole stress is just making me want more coffee.
7. And to top it off, it doesn’t even stock the books that are on your reading list.
8. So you have to buy them yourself.
RIP student loan
9. When the WiFi is absolutely horrendous and you have to use all of your mobile data.
This was not part of the deal, eduroam.
10. Or when your lecturer takes over a month to give you your essay feedback.
Please, just put us out of our misery.
11. And then writes one word comments on it.
Super. Thank you. That’s appreciated. No, really.
12. When you only have 6 hours of lectures a week.
You know there’s a problem when the daily number hours you spend on Netflix overtakes your weekly contact hours.
13. When the lecturer doesn’t reply to your email for days.
Sorry for engaging with the course 🙃
14. And when you realise you’re only actually in uni for 7 months of the year.
They tried to trick us…
