    Hi all, due to some personal circumstances I am debating dropping out of my current university course, and re-applying in a few years when things at home and my personal problems are resolved. So that I can truly focus on the course, and get a fresh start as I feel like things have hindered my progress and ability to do well this time around.

    I am studying adult nursing, which I know is very competitive and it is quite hard to get on the course to begin with. But if I left and start again in a few years time, what would be the chances of being accepted again?

    Would it look bad on me in the future?

    Many thanks for any advice.

    Katie.

    Hi Katie, I dropped out of university at the start of January and I've applied to a different place to start in September 2016. It doesn't look bad. Apart from your university and UCAS, nobody really needs to know. (Unless you're applying at the same university again) I think this is the case anyways. Best of luck!

    Hi Katie,

    I started Adult Nursing in 2012 and dropped out during my first year. I reapplied for Child Nursing this year and didn't have any problems. In fact it was a really good thing for me to be able to say what I learned from the experience and how I've developed. I'm sure you'll be fine.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

    If you want to continue with Adult nursing where you are currently studying, you could ask to step off the course and then return a year later. That way you don't have to reapply and you keep your place. It happens fairly often.
