    Hi TSR,

    Im studying Nutrition at university but Im not sure if I should carry on.

    Ive already failed my first year because I had a few problems outside of Uni.
    I dont have lots of money at the moment and I'll be in further debt after university.

    I liked the course and I do find it interesting but I dont know if its worth me getting into £40k+ debt. I also dont know if I'll get employed after Uni if I have a low grade either.
    I start my second year of university in October 12.

    Please provide some advice. I appreciate it.


    I think if you truly have a passion for the course then you should stay on the course and complete your degree. I'm positive you will achieve a great grade and you will get employed. Right now, I'm sure you are just having second thoughts because of the outcome of your first year but things do get better. I doubted myself a lot throughout my first and second year of uni. I realised that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve anything. I just graduated with a First Class Honours- something I thought was never possible. I am certain you will do just great. Keep going and stay positive.


    I heard you were big on leaving.

    Have you sorted out your external problems that lead you to screw up the first year? If yes then go for it and knuckle down(does your first year even count? I know it doesn't in a lot of places), if no then put it off until you've sorted them out.
