Hi! So here it goes...
So for nearly 3 years now I have been studying Animation & Visual Effects. I'm in my second year currently. I had to re take the second year - No fault of my own. The University F**ked us over so we ended up getting compensation and a fee wavier for the re-take. HOWEVER baring in mind I was 18 when I started my course...I am now 21 and a completely different individual to who I was ...change is inevitable and it happened.
Trying not to disappoint certain people I stupidly kept at it as long as I did trying to 'love' it again but it didn't happen and the course is no longer serving me...
My passion is Psychology if I could turn back the hands of time I would to study that instead. Student Finance will only fund me for 1 year if I was to change course. Therefore I will have to find 2 years worth of funding!? That is impossible and it makes me depressed because I know it wont happen.
BUT heres the thing...they fund you for 4 years in total...1 being a gift year.
Technically student finance only has paid my tuition fees for 2 years(as I had a fee waiver for the re-take which the university paid for).
So therefore I should really have 2 more years left of tuition funding as they only paid out for 2. So why have I been left with 1? If its because the retake is still being classed as a gift year...well It wasn't my fault what the University did to me.
If I had 2 more years funding left that makes my dream of studying psychology more possible!
I really regret the decisions I have made in the past...and I'm wondering if there is any possibility of hope out there I could be funded again for something I was meant to have done in the first place. Or maybe if there is another way around this?
Thank you for reading!
I'm in a degree that no longer serves me...I want to change course...HELP!
