If you choose to drop out after a couple of years or if you fail your third year, do you still get some sort of recognition from your university i.e. a certificate that you completed so much of the course?

I think you can but I doubt whether it's worth bothering with

If you fail your third year you get a certificate of higher education: a written equivalent of a slap in the face followed by a kick in the balls.

Transcript...no?

What if its a specific degree i.e. social work. I have been searching on the net but can't find anything.

Finish your degree/pull your socks up and work you arse off.

You probably get nothing/something worthless.

If you fail/drop out in your final year then you should get a pass/ ordinary degree.
If you quit in 2nd year you get some sort of certificate of higher education.
If you drop out during first year I believe you get nothing.

You can probably request a transcript of the work you've done up until that point.
I don't know whether it's worth anything, but you could speak to your administrative office, anyway.

Remember, though, that most people can be funded for original degree length+1yr, so retaking is always an option - or if it is first year, you can change completely.

You fail at life.

Sorry if that sounds harsh but unless something has gone terribly wrong (personal/family/healthwise), there should be no excuse for not even getting a third.

I agree. Failing a degree/dropping out without an alternative (even if its just something like "I want to follow my music" and then you become famous) is pretty crap. Employers will probably want to hire a graduate with education behind them or a non-graduate with working experience behind them. There's no name for people who are inbetween (drop outs I mean).

Social work is also quite competitive I hear and a degree will reap dividends in the long run. Persevere, work hard and speak to your tutor.
You can do this!

LOL, failing a degree, how **** would that be? Wasting at least 3 years of your life, and all that money . I hope nobody is praying for this to happen to them, lol.
