    So... I made a few mistakes last year such as becoming depressed and questioning whether there was even a point in getting out of bed. I'm on the way to fixing it one day at a time but I've really messed up my first year at University.

    Since I am back on track I wanted to know what the best thing to do next is so I can get it all sorted efficiently.

    I have chosen the course I want to do now here are the issues.

    -The University of my choice

    Now I've looked around all of these things and I got myself confused on the first step.

    I want to change the university I'm going to, change the course and also alert SFE of the change I'd like to make. I have found that they allow one extra year of finance which I now call failyear.

    Apart from that I'd like to say thanks to anyone who's read this and TL;DR.


    Take a year out, sort your head out, work out why you want to go to Uni and what you want to study.

    Going to Uni with any sort of residual mental health issue is never a good idea and going without a clear, considered idea about what you are doing and why is equally silly. Drop whatever offer you are holding this year and reapply to something you actually do want to do in October.
