    Some people insist on the second one.

    I mean I never heard the second one, but recently I heard someone, a friend, saying it as I pronounced it in the second one.
    He told me the second one is more common than the first one.
    Is the second one right?

    The second doesn't sound natural to me. The first is better, but native speakers use a schwa in the second syllable.
    I am not a teacher.

    Was that person a native speaker? I will be very surprised if you say yes, because I have never heard a native speaker say "studint", which is what the second pronunciation sounds like.

    Try saying it as if there was no letter at all between "stud" and "nt". The end of the word should sound almost the same as that of "didn't".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
