    I started studying speech and language therapy at Manchester uni at the end of September and I am really hating it. I enjoy my course and everything but I constantly feel alone and isolated. one of the problems is that im from Northern Ireland and I am missing home more than I thought I would. I miss my old life as 2015 up till now was the best year of my life. I think the main issue I have is that my flat is so crap. i'm living with 4 other girls, 2 of them are quite nice but they don't like to go out much and do the same course as each other so theyre really close. One girl is the most irritating person ever (no exaggeration lol) and she annoys everyone so theres always tension in the flat, she loves going out and is absolutely mad when she gets alcohol in her. the final girl is 23 and shes super boring and bossy and refuses to leave the flat to go anywhere with us. i'm in the middle where I enjoy going out but not constantly but I like to socialise with others. at the start I tried joining club and societies but I never really met anyone I clicked with and everyone ive met loves their flat and spends most of their time with them. ive met nice people on my course but I feel like they love their flat mates and only want to spend time with them and I feel like im tagging along if I go anywhere with them. I knows it's mainly my fault that I now feel completely alone, isolated and want to go home. but I want to make things better for myself as im unsure what I would do if I went home apart from reapplying next year. atm I just want to leave and im miserable, my confidence is at an all time low and I don't know what to do. sorry for this lol its so awfully depressing but can anyone offer any guidance at all?/? xx

    Hi
    I have just spotted your post. Really sorry that you are finding it tough - I have no real useful advice to give except give it some time. I have just started my second year in speech therapy just down the road at MMU. Maybe you should reflect on how tough it was to get your place, so it may be worth hanging onto for now as things may pick up once the initial time has passed and things settle down a bit. If you did go home and reapply what course would you do and if it was away from home/in England wouldn't you face the same situation next year?

    Maybe try some other clubs/societies? The group dynamics will probably change over time and you might find your niche then.

    I hope you find a way forward.

    Good luck and keep smiling.

    Hi, I go to mmu aswell and I'm kind of feeling how your feeling aswell. I want to go out too but I haven't really made many friends here so I'm feeling quite lonely, there's been times when I've wanted to leave but I do enjoy my course and I'm hoping it would get better. My flat mates are nice but we aren't really that close and we don't go out but I do want to go out but just have no one to go out with so I thought I'd give you a message xxx

    I'm from Northern Ireland aswell and I feel the same. I love my course though so I can't really decide what to do!

    I'm trying to stay. I have a countdown on my phone for finishing date in April.
