    Long story short I've just completed my first year of university but I have now discovered that the course and university life just isn't for me.
    I will be soon applying for jobs and I was wondering if I should mention my first year of study in my C.v or cover letter at all? as I'm not too sure how helpful or relevant it would be. I studied Sports Coaching and am now looking to work in customer service or similar.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Hi there,

    I'd say you should mention it and explain why you decided it wasn't for you. Speak about any societies or sports you did while at Uni and you can always mention that despite this there was a certain module you enjoyed. Just make sure you keep it positive, it's much better to say you tried something and it didn't work out than leaving a 1 year black hole in your CV. Hey, Uni isn't for everyone after all. Good luck with the job hunt, hope my answer has been somewhat helpful.
