    I posted something similar in the English forum earlier but got no response, and I really need help.

    I absolutely hate the course I'm on, and have come to the realisation that an English or Journalism course would be the best fit for me. My university offers one that sounds perfect for me, but is it far too late for me to switch now?

    Probably is too late.

    You could always re apply?

    I dropped out early Jan last year and reapplied.

    I would try talk it out with your institution whether it be a school/ uni. If they can do something about it, they will.

    Hello you.

    You can do what is referred to as a 'false start' it's there for people who are new to university. They have started a course, found out it wasn't really for them and so they can restart on a second course whilst still getting all the funding from the relevant organisations.

    More info after the jump: http://www.strath.ac.uk/education/st...sestartscheme/

    I know that that's SAAS related, but i'm sure if you're with another awards organisation, they may have a similar program. It just gives you the freedom to switch courses without a fee penalty.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Tomcat. I don't get any funding anyway, so that's not a concern. I just don't want to stick at my course until June, nor do I want to do nothing until September. I'm so disappointed.
