    Hi, this is my first thread so...

    Ok, basically, 3 weeks into the 2nd term of my 1st year :/ and I'm really not enjoying my time here. I won't go into why, its roughly the same reasons that others drop out.
    If I did drop out now, do you think the uni would let me restart again in October 2010. I'm at Durham, by the way.
    I'd probably want to do the same course again, but have found it hard while I've been here, because of depression etc. and have subsequently got pretty bad grades, would they accept me back.
    Sorry for sounding like a bit of a loser, I was just hoping uni would be 'the time of my life' , and it hasn't been, but I can see now that it would have been, if I'd done things a bit differently during the first term, and had found people who I have something in common with.

    By the sounds of it you simply want to restart again at Durham, correct? If so, then talk to your personal academic tutor, explain the whole situation, your depression, etc. and see what he says.

    Unfortunately you're a bit late now to reapply via UCAS to other universities, though you could always email some and see if they'd consider your late application.

    Hmm... my tutor isn't a particularly nice human being, and i feel really uncomfortable talking to him about anything.

    To find that out you have to ask your personal tutor.

    You're there to work and get a degree, the social side is the icing on the cake. What if you start again and you again find that things arn't exactly to your liking? .
    I have thought about this before thanks. I can see what I should have done during my first term i.e. not hiding in my room, feeling depressed. It wasn't just 'my fault' , there were loads of factors that have led me to wanting to start over. Thanks
