‘Time flies when you're having … fun?’
There will always be many things you want to do at university. Balancing your social life with study, and balancing the many extra-curricular activities available with essay and exam commitments, can be a challenge in itself.
It is easy in a course with relatively few ‘contact’ hours to see these few hours as the total of your academic week.
