    I am going to drop out of university but when I leave, I will not have anything to do with my time. I am planning on looking for a part-time job but I don't know how long it is going to take to get one. I am also planning on teaching myself computer programming/coding, at home.

    What did you do after you dropped out of university? Was there a period of time where you didn't have a lot to do?

    By the way, I am 100% sure that I want to drop out. I have thought about it a lot this past week. I knew from the induction day that I didn't like it there, but I decided to stick it out for a while to see if my opinions changed. They haven't really. My reasons:
    - The course is not for me(Accountancy & Finance). I thought I would like it because I did an apprenticeship in accountancy a few years ago. There are three different classes on the course and I only find one of them enjoyable, but not enough to stay there and pay £9,000 per year.
    - I am commuting, and the train fares are costing me a bomb.
    - I don't like the local area much.
    - Too much group coursework. I prefer working independently.
    - I can't see myself doing accounting as a career anymore.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,

    I'm not going to try and convince you to stay at your current uni, I think that you've made it quite clear that you don't want to.

    I would suggest that you look at other universities and see if you can find a course/uni that would address the problems that you've identified.

    Additionally I might suggest securing a job before you leave the university, so that you've got at least some money coming in. Otherwise you're going to find yourself bored as hell and wasting opportunity to get experience.

Do you like carrot cake?
