Really not enjoying my college course - wrong choice. What can I do? Watch

Wow that definitely sounds like you're not in a good place right now. Does the college you currently go to offer any Level 3 BTECs in Creative Media? or even a Level 2 BTEC in Media which you can then complete and go on to do a Level 3 course. I know that taking the extra year sounds daunting - but it will fly by! I did music for a year at my college, and then switched to BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Print Based Creative Media which is essentially journalism. I'm now in my last year of the course and can honestly say its flown by and its been great. You learn so much and gain a wide range of skills! So even if you feel a bit silly going back to the career advisors at your college, it will all be worth it in the end! and if your college doesn't offer media courses, then I'd definitely think about going to the other college you mentioned. It might be further away but it'll definitely be worth it. My college is one of the best in the area as well as surrounding areas as it focuses solely on BTECS/Degrees, and many people, including my friends, travel over 20 miles to and from college everyday! So definitely look in to all your options, especially soon as if you leave it too late, you won't be able to start the course this year and will have to finish a year of your current tourism course before starting a new one next September!
