    I'm a mature student that is closer to 40 than 30.

    I am studying at a prestigious university and am currently in my foundation year. This course would lead me on to what I thought was my dream but now i'm doubting everything.

    The course hasn't been as well organised as I, or many other people on my course would have hoped (especially when you take in account it's prestige). The first term was a disaster but I managed to pass with marks that were either 2:1 or 1:1 in nature (although I appreciate it is a foundation year).

    The previous term had some improvements but the pace picked up and I have felt out of my depth for most of the term. I've also had some personal problems that I don't want to get into on here as people may recognise me.

    Over the Easter break I have had 3 assignments to do totalling around 10,000 words and I haven't even started. It feels like i've lost interest and no matter how many times I try to give myself a kick up the backside, it just doesn't happen.

    I feel like i'm struggling with not being in the world of work and I don't know if I even enjoy Uni. I don't know if it's the foundation year that has left me feeling like this and whether I would enjoy next year but I just feel exhausted and i'm contemplating not even going back!

    I don't really know what I expect from people on here but I felt like I had to just write my feelings down somewhere!

    I just sent you a pm
