I have recently considering either transferring or dropping out of University. Today I returned to Uni after the Christmas period, and I didn't want to return AT ALL! I live around 5/6 hours away on the train, which for me is a deal breaker as I'm not able to pop home to see my friends, which is a massive thing for me!! I am not the most academic person, and find the work load hard. I struggle with the content, and it is starting to make me feel really depressed. I feel that if I drop out, my family will see me as failing, and be disappointed. I just don't know what to do? I also don't want to look back on life and have any regrets, as thats the thing that scares me the most. Has anyone got any advice they could give me?

Have a meeting with your advisor to speak about your options, there's no point in being unhappy and your mental health comes first but dropping out after a feeling that many students got through may be a bit drastic

in my opinion, i don't think you should drop out. even though, i am nowhere near uni but most of the people who have posted threads on here and have dropped out of uni seem to be dissapointed in themselves therefore i don't think it will be a good idea. i think you'll regret it as well because your reasons for dropping out aren't really important.. just work hard and everything will be fine!! your friends won't be there forever for you!

I'm in the same situation as you, but I live an hour and a bit away(the ability to come home easily when I want is probably the only reason I haven't switched universities). I'd say look into transferring to a uni closer to home if possible. I'm struggling with the content too, as are others I'm sure. It just comes down to the hard work you have to put in to understand the content, the long hours until you get it. If you don't enjoy your degree/don't think it'll realistically be be beneficial to you in the future, it can be harder to motivate yourself to put in the work, so maybe take a step back and consider this.
