So I began studies at Macquarie University in July 2005 at aged 18. This was the very first University I had attended and enrolled in a Bachelor of Science.
We all sat through lectures and went to practicals routinely, accepting the masses of information being presented to us, often familiar from High School studies. Totally oblivious to the incurring cost to us, compiling our HECS Debts, which we were told not to worry about because we will either never earn enough to pay it back, or will be earning enough not to have to worry about it.
I was a loner at this University, made few friends, knew few people from high school that went there, and to this day, have no lasting relationships from there.
The units I was studying were not of much interest as I only got through one set of first year units. I was only doing those subjects to get me to higher level units. I found this structure of the course strange, as the title of future subjects were just lines from the text books.
Like any Uni, they're there to make money, praying on the innocent minds of the young and a bit lost in life.
