You can have mine if you like. I enjoyed doing it in my 40s (university is wasted on the young) but I don't need it now!

Re time taken to get a degree. When I was doing mine I put forward the idea that there ought to be a two year option, with shorter vacations and more intensive learning, as I considered there was a large amount of free time built into the course. Of course this in theory is meant to be taken up with study, but in fact much of this time is devoted to acquiring then sleeping off hangovers. When I put my suggestion forward I was shouted down by fellow students who thought themselves hugely overworked already, putting in a solid 15-20 hour week for 30 weeks a year, so I doubt if it will ever happen!
