    I am currently in my 2nd year of study, but i really hate being at university.

    Ideally i would like to complete this year, take a year out of studing, then hopefully feel re-inspired and ready to complete my degree to a decent level.

    Is this possible? or if you leave do you have to start again? Im not even sure whether i would come back (probably most dependant on if i fail this year and have to retake it) but as dropping out could potentially be a huge mistake, i would like the safety of being able to return after a year out.

    Any help would be much apprectiated!

    I would imagine it depends on your uni. I know you can at Essex, but I don't know about other unis and I couldn't even tell you if here you'd only be allowed to do it under some circumstances.

    Usually it is yes. Unis are much more understanding of this kind of thing than people might think - and if it's between you dropping out completely or taking a break they'd much rather you came back. Speak to your tutors or counsellors about it.
