    That time I was a university student

    Is this correct?

    It was about many years ago when I attended an English language institute. That time I was a university student, and I had no job, so I had enough free time to be able to go to an English class regularly. After graduation, I found a full time job, so I had to quit my English classes. Since then I have planned to learn and study English by myself.

    Does to be able to suggest possibility or ability here?
