Ok, it might be helpful to question what aspect of being at university you don't like first. Is it the course? There might be different modules so you can specialise in a subject you like, maybe see your course leader/head of faculty, if you still want to change? The people in your halls? Maybe talk to the accommodation office, and try and find a new one? Is it the social life? There's too much to be made of this, to be honest. Be friendly and kind to everyone, make a few good friends and take it from there. You don't have to drink or go out everynight, and there's plenty of people in the same boat. In addition to these questions, what were your expectations of coming to uni? Most universities have some sort of personal development plan with the aim of improving employment prospects, not that it is too much of an issue seeing as you're doing biology. I mean, you still have to be motivated. I would suggest going to your student union, as they would be able to help with pretty much all these aspects. Of course, if you then feel, after everything you've had to go through to get to uni, that it is not for you, then you will need to converse with your personal tutor/course leader/head of subject/faculty and see what they can do for you. I hope that you still find university is for you though. Seems a shame to give up.

Maybe you're playing devil's advocate here. But claiming benefits is not the answer. I was on jsa for about a month in between leaving 6th form and getting a job in retail. I knew I would have a year out with the aim of getting some money behind me for university, but until I got a job, I had no choice. If you do not have little motivation now, they will sap any you have left. They are soul destroying places to serve a need in society to provide for people out of work or education: it certainly is not an easy way out.

And working in retail has given me a new appriciation for university, but you also meet so many different people: some went to uni and couldn't do their chosen career, some people were at college, then there were the people who have been in retail since before I was born. I fought really, really hard to get into uni. Plymouth University wasn't my first choice, and last year, I did have serious considerations at just scrapping my UCAS application and starting again. But I didn't. I have accepted it and I am so glad that it is my university now.
