Hey, any advice I could get with my problem would be hugely appreciated!!
I'm just about to start back at uni, going into second year... Literally the worst time I could have realised that I'm not that happy there. Don't want to name and shame the uni but let's say it's an acquired taste and it's just not me. Also starting to think I should be on a slightly different course; I'm taking law and history but I really miss studying English literature and I want it back in my student life. Plus I'm considering a new direction for my career after uni (less lawyer, more something in writing).
I have family in Edinburgh and from what I've seen the courses there are rather flexible; ideally I'd like to take modules in law, history and English literature. (I know that Edinburgh teaches Scottish law and that's not a problem as I'm not looking to qualify for professional English legal bodies). So I'm considering moving there but I'm really not sure / don't know if it could give me what I want.
I guess what I'm wondering is whether my best bet is to leave my current university and reapply to start at a different uni in September? Presumably I have missed my chance to transfer for second year now, and I see that 3rd year transfers aren't possible
I'm a little worried also that I'm making a rash decision. I had a strong first year academically and due to the nature of my uni I have a feeling my credits won't be easily transferrable.
Sorry for what's probably a long post. I'm just confused right now and looking for any advice from anyone who's maybe been in my situation, or who knows how transfers work. Thanks in advance
