What's university life like in other countries?

You either join a student society and get drunk every day and night between sluts and fake snobs.
Or you don't and you probably don't even have to talk to anyone for four years.

I am 5 years into college studies and have found it odd how easily accepted a NEET lifestyle is as long as you keep your grades up. I can shut myself in on 4chan for weeks, skipping most classes, as long as I study up a few days before each exam and get a decent B or A, and everyone approves of what I am doing in life. I have no idea wtf I am going to do when I actually have to go outside from 9-5 every day once I graduate next fall

I got wasted all throughout the last semester.
Sometimes I would arrive drunk at school.
It's not cool.

Become an academic senpai. Being a bit weird is a lot more acceptable in academia.
>>
>>53279694
What are you studying?

The first year here is very different to the other years, since most people are idiots and fail terribly. So you are kind of anonymous for the entire year

I'm still in my first year. I'm just in my room all day, masturbating way more than I used to. I get above average grades so it doesn't matter. But it gets lonely.

Its shit compared to America.If you meant the student life.

''Dorm culture'' is not as popular here

>>53280031
Try not to wank too much, it nukes your serotonin levels and can make you pretty miserable.
>>
The social life inside uni is basically nonexistant, there are barely any clubs and societies and those which exist suck ass. Uni life here is very individualistic you just come to your classes daily and that's it. Teachers can be jerks sometimes and kick you out for no reason. Do not expect any political or SJW activities.

Only guys behind her are good-looking, all the girls are unattractive and fucking fat. What the hell.

But that means sex makes you miserable?

No idea, but I go to UNC Chapel Hill and everyone here is pretty liberal and socially outgoing.

My grades are fine but people think I'm some sort of anomaly for not going out to Franklin street or a sports game.
>>
>>53280411
Student life is pretty big here. A lot of bars and cafes wont even let you in if you arent a student.

They actually do this to keep shitskins out of the nightlife.
>>
>>53280500
Kind of. The social interaction balances it out so the effects aren't as pronounced.
>>
Every subject has its own guild or whatever and different coloured overalls which students usually wear at parties. The most social ones or the ones who want to fill their CV join the board of their study subject and usually everyone knows who they are.
>>
I currently live in what was once a traditional dorm with shared kitchen. Now it is more like a small apartment since they installed kitchens everywhere some years ago.
It's comfy and allows me to not interact too often while still being relatively cheap.
There's about an equal amount of people who wants to be part of dorm culture and people who want to keep for themselves really. Been to one party with the others (lived here for 1,5 month) and it was pretty good.

>>53279694
Can't do this at my university. It's all about group work and effort, and you have to discuss things with other people frequently. If it wasn't like that i'd probably shut myself in too and just be semi-neet for all my student money. Not really that bad though, the people there are nice.

we get to hang around with this uniforms after the first year if we want

I'm studying in medical university. It was a very wrong choice to go there, because either I have absolutely no interest in medicine or (most likely) I'm just dumb. Exams are coming and I don't know shit.

I expected an Australian or Canadian flag when I opened this thread.
Pretty sure exhibitionism can actually land you on a sex offenders list in some American states, really not a smart idea.

Depends on what you are doing

It is okay, sometimes even fun.

In Brazil it all really depends on wether you are on a public (federal or state universities are the best and highest ranked here) or a private one (those are usually very new universities, created in the last 20 years when universities were allowed to be for-profit in Brazil).

It goes like this:
Federal/State university: parties on campus most every night after 22 o'clock, when classes end, intensive course work, incredibly active political life (if that's your piece of cake, of couse. It's a remnant of the military dictatorship, when universities were one of the few places politics could be discussed somewhat openly), drive for extension, research and interdisciplinary activities. Almost no dorms (mine had 20 apartments for over 30k students), so no dorm culture and no frats/sororities at all.

Private universities: no parties on campus, generally not even a real campus to speak of, just a building somewhere in a city with some labs and classrooms. Politics is seen as troublemaking, not stimulated by the institutions nor practiced by the students mostly out of fear of reprisal by the institutions. Socializing is also very rare, espeially outside the uni building/grounds. Barely any extra-class activities, no extension, no research, bare bones labs, bare bones training gor whatever you need. Tuition varies a lot, ranging from extremely cheap to very expensive ($100 dollars a month to $10k dollars a month for medical school or specialty engineering undergrads). No masters or doctorates available, except very shitty ones, the not-shitty ones are extremely overpriced and almost entirely made to feed more PhD's to the federal and state unis.

That's pretty much it.

I find out this fall.

>uni is free, if I don't fail any subject
>won't have to move and make parents pay rent
>will have more time and energy to devote to what I want, including a part time job which is also experience
>will likely get a monthly scholarship from county office
>will be able to apply for Erasmus (which I already did in high school and it was great) and numerous other programs to travel via school
>Will get student discounts for public transport and student restaurant food

It's looking pretty good so far, I guess
