College Education for Living in Australia?

A story on the internet this morning caught my attention: 50% of Irish college students skipped lectures to stay at home and watch Home and Away, the Australian soap about life in a beach town. When I was a student we didn't need an excuse like Home and Away to skip lectures and if we did we certainly wouldn't have admitted that was why we were dossing. Mostly we hung around the canteen or the Students Union. Still I suppose these days an introduction to life and customs in Australia should be on the curriculum for most courses in Irish colleges so I suppose they can claim extra credit for attending future career training.
