    Basically i'm doing a one year conversion course which i actually hate, but it is needed for my career. I've done 80% of the modules before, the uni is miles from where i live, i spend up to 5 hours a day travelling, I actually cannot stand a couple of the people off the course (very bad group work experience), there is so much pointless 'homework' that takes absolutely forever to do and isn't even marked (which takes about 25 hours a week) all attendance is monitored. I've honestly not learnt anything new.

    I'm basically wandering, how far i can push it with attendance, not doing the homework and only doing the marked assignments and exams. i'd pass flying colours if i wasn't spending all this time travelling in, doing the weekly work. I seriously considered quitting due to hating it so much, but i really need it for my career. Others on my course (who are also graduates) feel exactly the same.

    I know i sound like i have a bad attitude, but the course isn't massively related to my career (but a requirement) so it's not interesting to me and the whole situation has affected me quite badly. Any ideas?
