    I am set to do a course at coventry for English and journalism but now I've changed my mind. I'm unsure what I want to do.
    I was thinking of an NHs course but I have no science a levels (I don't want to do nursing)
    I just don't have a proper interest I'm any course.

    If I were you I'd contact my Uni and retract your place and take a year out doing part time work tod decide what you want to do.
    With the cost of Uni currently the last thing you wanna do is pay £9,000 a year for a course you're not too in to and want to swap later on. Take some time out to thing long and hard about what you want to do with your life.

    If I were you I'd do as the other poster has suggested and take some time out of education like a gap year to work and explore other options.

    If you start your degree in September, and realise in your second year what you really want to do, you'd have to self fund part of a new course. Don't do a degree simply because you've been accepted.

    I'm 25 and starting university in September, so it isn't too late for you just yet

    Take another year out. Do some volunteering. The problem with people on gap years is most only work... they don't do anything else to even try and broaden their hobbies etc.

    You can do a subject that you're interested in, such as english, history or whatever, that'll open up doors to graduate jobs in management, business, finance, HR, etc.

    Starting a business is hard and can lead to fortunes or debts that can make or break you. A risk you'll have to take if that's what you want. But often it's also who you know, not what you know.
