Should I stay at University or transfer? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm having a huge dilemma right now. I'm currently in my first year at University in London studying Film Studies. In my first three months I loved the course, I loved living in London and I made some great friends. However, coming back after Christmas and it's like a switch has just flipped in my mind. I hate living in London and I have cried every day since I got back. Obviously I think being homesick has something to do with it, but I'm not realising that you have to be made of hard stuff to live in this city, and I don't think I am.

    My dilemma is whether I should stay here and finish out the rest of my 3 years, whilst living in a city I hate, or drop out and apply to the university in my hometown. Obviously I would love living in my hometown, but I probably wouldn't be studying a course that I wanted to (as they don't do Film Studies). Another problem would be that if I did this, I would be 21 when I start in my first year, and 24 when I graduate.
    My other option is to leave university altogether. I'm not sure if it's really for me, but then what would I do if I did leave?

    Does anyone have any advice? I didn't realise how difficult it would be coming to university!

    Get a job.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
