University is depicted in modern culture as the gateway to personal discovery and development. Never again in your life will you have as much freedom and opportunity bestowed upon you as there is right now. Unless you truly have spent all your money on alcohol, you are living in comfortable squalor. The space for self discovery is wide open – you can enrich your studies with extra-curricular sports and activities, you can debate the intricate matters of the universe with your peers at the pub and you can even find time to learn a new language. University sounds amazing.
But is it really? Unless you truly do possess super powers, university is not a place where you can have your cake and eat it too.
