  • University days

大学時代は「University days」と言います。

大学時代の友達は「My friend from university」と言います。
また、「Uni」省略しても構いません。
例文:
- He is my friend from uni
- He's been my friend since my university days(彼は僕の大学時代からの友達です)

自分の大学時代について語るときは、特に「In my university days..」と言う文書のくだりが多いです。または、「When I was at university」もOKです。
例文:
- In my university days, I was a bookworm, always in the library. But I'd also play football and go drinking sometimes.(大学時代は勉強の虫でした。それでも時にはサッカーもし、時々飲み遊んでいました。)

  • My college/university years/days

  • My student years/days

Before having a look at the different expressions below, I would like to talk about synecdoche (sih-nek-duh-kee). Synecdoche is a figure of speech that is used to describe a part of something, that refers to a whole.
For example:
We won the rugby world-cup.
You aren't necessarily talking about "we", but your country as a whole.
In other words, in the expressions below, "days" refers to all of the years in whole. So if you were to talk about your "high school days", you are talking about your high school years and experience as a whole.


My college/university years/days

This is an expression that you can use to describe the years or that you spent in college/university.

Here are some examples of this phrase in a sentence:

My college/university years/days were some of the best in my life.
I was a heavy drinker during my college/university years/days
My spouse and I met during my college/university years/days.
(Your spouse is the person you are married to.)

My student years/days

Similar to the previous expression, you can use this to talk about your university/college years. A "student" is a person who is studying at university or any other place of tertiary education.

Here are some examples of this phrase in a sentence:

I lived in a shared apartment during my student years/days.
My student years/days are home to some of my best memories.

  • My college days.

  • My university days.

  • My student days.

Here is some examples of these phrases being used in context: during my college days I used to play a lot of tennis. Back in my university days I used to work as a barista part-time. During my student days, I didn't have a lot of money, but I still had enough to get by.

  • My university days

  • My college days

  • My days at university

The first thing to mention is that we can use the words, "college," and, "university," interchangeably as they both mean the same thing. College is more widely used in American English, whereas University is more used in British English. Lastly we can also have some movement of the words as seen in example three.

  • Back in my student days / years

  • My days of higher education

  • University life

When you are at University / college, you are a 'student' so these would be your student days / years.
We also refer more formally to University as higher education.
Or an informal term for discussing the years spent studying is to say 'University life'. For example, 'I spent most of my University life partying.'

  • Back in my college days...

  • In my university days...

if you want to tell someone abut a story from when you were in university, you can start your sentence by saying something like "Back in my college days..." or "When I was in college/university...". By starting your sentence similar to this, the other person will know that you are speaking about something that happened back in the past.

  • During my time at university....

  • In my university days...

  • As a student...

Example sentences:

During my time at university I used to eat "take aways" often.

In my university day I was a bit of a bookworm.

As a student I lived in a rented house with three friends.

In British English we tend to say university, rather than college. "College" tends to refer to the two years of studying A levels before university, usually aged 16 to 18. "Students" often signifies university students, rather college or school.

The phrases above can be used to tell someone about your days you spent as a student in university.
