    What do you do when you realise you're in the middle of a uni degree in your hometown but you wish you had moved away to your insurance choice and done a completely different subject?

    do you get your degree and then do a postgraduate course to explore your options? I feel so stressed and down about it.

    Can you afford to move away and start again? Or is living at home the only option?

    Two options really...

    A) move away and begin again but it depends if you can afford it or not
    B) find a way to motivate yourself to finish where you are then move away for post grad.

    Thanks guys

    Not sure how I would fund my post-grad, as I wouldn't receive any student loans if I moved away would I? Am I right in thinking this?

    There are postgraduate loans being introduced for 2016 entry and afterwards, which you could apply for if you wanted to do a masters qualification

    Also, if you decide to go into teaching, you can apply to Student Finance, as well as get healthy bursaries from the government, the amount of which varies depending on your subject and final degree classification

    Ok. Well, be sure to separate the respective issues of :
    1.completing a degree and
    2. moving away.

    Is there a student counselling service that could advise you about transferring elsewhere, so that you could complete a degree but living away from home?

    Yeah
    I think the main issues is that I don't want to do this degree subject anymore, but i'm so far into it. I would prefer to move away but might have to do that later in life.

    Yeah. Apparently it is capped at £10000 though isn't it? So the postgrad course I was looking at costs £6k. Not much left over to live e.g. rent, food, bills etc.
