Student Sneaks Into Mate's Lectures At Different Uni As His Friend Was Too Hungover

Ever woken up hungover before a full day of work or university, and wondered whether you could get away with sending a ringer on your behalf? Maybe you should've asked this guy:


Twenty-one-year-old Bradley Green woke up in a right state one morning back in February, having successfully blagged free drinks while out on the sesh the night before.

However, if he felt bad, his mate - who wisely wants to be referred to simply by the name 'Lee' - felt worse. In fact, he couldn't get to his first-year law seminar at the University of Nottingham.

Now, law may not have been Bradley's subject - in fact, he's just graduated in music production from Leeds Beckett University, more than 75 miles away.

However, he agreed to go above and beyond for his pal, donning Lee's clothes and sneaking past security to attend the law lecture. Fair play.

Bradley explained: "I met my mates back in Nottingham, my hometown, during some time off. I took them to a club in Nottingham where staff know me, so we were given free drinks the whole night.

"We were absolutely hammering the drink. We got very, very drunk. I was convincing my mates to stay out but Lee said, 'I have uni tomorrow. I can't.'

"But I said, 'Forget uni, bro. I'll just got for you. I do it all the time at my uni.' So I did. We slept at his and then I borrowed clothes and went to the lecture as him."

Now a music producer and nightclub promoter (presumably he didn't fancy undertaking the rest of Lee's course), Nottingham-born Bradley reckons he had no problems looking the part.

He explained: "I looked like I fitted in as I had my hood up and head down. I was making funny comments though to people next to me.

"I know nothing about law. I have been watching Suits recently so I am interested. But [when] I got there, the guy was telling stories about law and I didn't know much about it.

"I'm also dyslexic so taking notes just wasn't an option really. It was so different to my university."

Despite being somewhat hungover himself - well, you would be if you'd downed 10 Jägermeister shots and a good deal more booze the night before - said he enjoyed it.

He said: "You just have to push through the hangover. It was a good laugh. I liked seeing how different the unis were. Where my mate was staying, they were selling fruit and vegetables actually in the halls.

"I didn't eat any fruit and vegetables during my whole time at uni so it was so different. At the uni, they were selling gourmet burgers and pizzas in the cafeteria. At my uni, we basically just had a fake KFC."

Bradley, who uses the Instagram handle SundayMidweekOfficial, shared the video on TikTok where it has gone down a storm, presumably with people planning to replicate his idea next time they're feeling under the weather.

He said: "Genuinely at one point, I was thinking of starting this thing where you go to different unis and just sit in random lectures and just see what they're like and then rate the university based on that, as opposed to like a night out which people normally do."

The University of Nottingham has been approached for comment.
