So I'm nearing the end of my first year at Uni, and for awhile now I've been thinking about dropping out as it's not what I thought it would be and I don't think I could do two more years of this course (graphic design & communication). I also suffer with Social Anxiety Disorder which has been playing up a lot lately due to this course. I was just wondering what others have done once they dropped out of uni or what you would do? I already have a job and I'm just stuck on what to do next. Thanks.

make sure the reason you wnat to leave is because you dont like the course or are unhappy or its not just anxiety as you could resolve that.
If you are going to drop out then check with the uni at what date they take the final instalment from your fees and if you can avoid it. Do that asap because it might save you a substantial sum. The Uni will also be able to inform you of the procedures to follow.
Talk to your tutor and anyone else for advice on making the decision.
SFE will fund you for 4 years, so you could in theory go back and do a degree elsehwere at some time.
Go and talk to the Uni careers and spend some time there. You could look for a job with just A levels, some apprenticeships are still open or look at further ducation and more vocational skills. Lots of people leave, it doesnt have to be the end of the world, just you deciding you wnat a different path.
