I'm currently at the Uni of Bath studying politics, but the course isn't what I expected and I'm struggling to even turn up to lectures as I find them so dull. I also find the area pretty boring and really miss London! I've been looking into Goldsmiths uni and decided the politics course there looks perfect for me! I don't know whether to drop out and apply there though, as it isn't generally regarded as well as Bath and I'd be missing out on the work experience placement in the third year. I'm really at a loss! Any suggestions?

Do what you feel is good for you. Don't worry too much about uni rankings (although rankings may be more sginificant in politics), just try to get a 1st. If you are really miserable then do what makes you happy, **** what society expects.
Then again you could argue although you don't like the uni and the course, the struggle of it could make you a stronger person and thus achieving a 1st from bath would be a bigger personal achievement. Don't just give up when the going gets tough, look at the final outcome not the current one.
This has been absolutely no help to you what so ever.

Think of it this way, University is an investment, you are investing in your learning and your future.
If your not happy with your course, talk to your lecturers, professors, tutors or student advisers. Weigh up the pros and cons of being at Bath and being back in London.
Perhaps try and find a Goldsmiths university student who is doing Politics on this site and ask them some questions on how they are finding the course.
I hope this has helped
