    Hey OP,
    I know exactly how you feel.
    I currently do events management with the intention of being a wedding planner and i'm finding the course to be based on business, accounting and marketing and covers the same things that I did at GCSE & A level which is very frustrating and unmotivating.

    I have been seriously considering leaving university but having looked in to my other options I feel pretty much stuck with staying at uni. Like you I also considered beauty therapy at college next september but thats a long time away with not much hope for a decent job to kill time.

    At the end of the day you have to do what makes you happy & if your in a position to do that with your plan B do it As everyone has been telling me you can always come back to uni if you change your mind, nothing is set in stone!!

    Thanks for the advice guys.

    Ok an update...

    I've quit officially!!

    Problem: My halls of residence is a pain in the arse and I HAVE to pay £94/week even after I have vacated until a new tenant moves in... so I have to find another tenant. I've been thinking Gumtree but considering I'm back home in Leeds it would mean going to Sheffield for a day of advertising...

    Any ideas where I could successfully advertise where a lot of people would see it?

    I'm going back to Sheffield tomorrow evening to collect essentials and take numerous photographs of the place for the advertisement.

    Any advice guys? I cannot afford £94 a week!

    ...Thing is... I'm being pressurised to contact Student Finance straight away but if I cancel... I'm paying £94 a week of my £120/week wage paying my room! So surely I should keep quiet? Or not?

    ADVICE PLEASE!!
