    I am having a bit of a life crisis, basically, I have no idea what I want to do in life.

    I studied business at college as I thought it was quite a general course to do as I had no aim, then went on to study it at uni, but dropped out in my first year as I did not like the course.

    I had experience working with children and decided I would like to be a teacher, the thing is now im in my 2nd year of a teaching course and have decided being a teacher is not actually that enjoyable.

    So now I am kind of stuck, I feel like I should just carry on as I have started and do not really have any other options.

    i would quite like to just start a training scheme, i do not actually mind what kind either, but I do not know of any that you can do without a degree. I would quite like to look at a bunch of them and see what I like, I am fed up of being a student, I am much better at learning on the job.

    Any advice/ideas?

    well, it seems like you just need to take one step back and think about what you want to do and what you find enjoyable. Obviously it can be very hard for some people and actually there are many people who are in the same position as you.
    I would say stick to what you're doing now and try to get used to the course before leaving it because you will just be wasting your time.

    As you are at uni maybe it would be a good idea to pop along to your Career centre and speak to someone there, have a look around at the resources.
