    Hi

    I initially applied to DMU to study Architecture however after a week on the course I changed to product design through the internal transfer process. However, after doing product design for a year I regret my decision.
    I've become very depressed as I don't enjoy this course at all. My lack of motivation has lead me to not handing in assignments and not attending lectures. Which of course means my attendance and grades are very poor. I know for a fact that I am going to fail this year.

    After a year spent doing nothing , I used my time to look into other courses at DMU. I have decided that I want to study Criminology.
    After achieving an A* in sociology, where I did a crime and deviance module I've come to realise that I enjoy the subject.

    My worry however, is that I will not be allowed to repeat my first year and transfer onto a different course because I've failed my first year.

    I spoke to the head of criminology and he said their may be a case where I have to pass the year in order to transfer. But I have to wait till June to find out. This frightens me as it don't want to risk spending a year at home next year, not being accepted into university.

    I was wondering if anyone has been or is in the same situation as me. Although it's late to go through UCAS , I can still send a late application to other universities. What do you suggest I do?

    Thank you

    If you have to wait till June then it wont be too late to go through clearing to get into other universities if DMU wont accept the transfer, so dont panic yet
