Change university but family problems effecting my choices watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am currently a first year student studying law and business but want to change course to criminology single honours, but the uni that i am at now only does criminology as a combined subject.

    The problem is my dad is terminally ill and so i dont want to move too far away from home as i don't know how things will effect me at a later date. Am too scared to tell my parents that i am not enjoying my course and worried how my mum and sister will react knowing that both my Dad and I won't be at home if i did move away.

    I want to be there for my mum and sister and as selfish as it sounds i want to make the most out of uni aswell, but the closest universities that do criminology as single subject are at least an hour away! And a closer university approx 40mins is asking for ABB and i onli have BBB.

    I am thinking of using criminology as a back up if i dont do well this year I am allowed to still apply through ucas and not tell the other universitites that am still attending a university or should i just drop out if am not enjoying the course?

    I am really confussed !!!

    I would really appreciate any thoughts/advice, thank you!
