    I am a student currently studying education and I am really not enjoying my course. It entails subjects such as philosophy, psychology and sociology. All of which I never studied before and really dislike. Its taking a toll on my health now and my anxiety has been bad, I have a lot of sleepless nights and I either overeat or undereat. Im worried about the debt. I have tried it for a term and have not liked it, is that long enough? My second option is too take up a art course next year and drop out now, I regret now doing this in the first place because I am passionate about art and it was my favourite subject. Everyone told me it was not worth doing though, even though all my teachers encouraged me into that direction. Should you just stick out your degree and get a recognised one or study what you are passionate about? UCAS applications are due on Thursday so any advice would be appreciated!

    I haven't actually started uni yet but I would think a term should be long enough to decide whether you like the course or not. Is it the entire subject you're not enjoying or just the modules you're currently undertaking? If your passion is art then I'd say it may be a good idea to switch but have you considered what career you could do afterwards compared to your current career goals? Is it possible to switch to an art degree at your current uni or is it too late?

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
