    I'm midway into my second year studying Mathematics, and so far I haven't been enjoying it at all. Without enjoying the course, I lack the motivation to study properly therefore do well in my exams, also I find the content really tough. I regret not changing after my first year but I felt I hadn't worked as a hard as I should've because I was going out a lot, so although I scraped through I thought I could keep my head down and really do well. Now my situation is that I want to change course and move university but I don't want to go back to the beginning and pay fees out my own pocket. I do a minor in management so I'd like to change the course to management or half maths half management (because I do enjoy management) but I wanna know if this would be possible to do from second year somewhere else. Also this course I currently do is very stats based which brings my grades down and the more modules I could do in management the better my overall grade would be.

    Right okay..

    Next step in the process is to talk to your tutor and see what he/she says. Do assess the financial implication of the decision you undertake.

    Also, there is possibility you can change to a very similar course but this depends on the university policy, at the end of second year it's very rare to be able to do this (and go directly into third year) but it's not impossible. You may be able to skip first year and go directly into second year of a similar discipline but this may limit your module choices (like it did for me).
