    Hi Guys

    I've just finished a first year on Illustration/Animation at Kingston but have decided it's not the course for me, and because there are no courses that I am interested in at Kingston uni so I would also need to change uni.

    My question is weather I should quickly go check out my other uni/course choices and apply to try and get in this year possibly through clearing or instead to take a year out of my current course to make up my mind before choosing?

    I already have a few different courses in-mind but haven't sorted out visiting our anything just yet.

    It would be really helpful to hear any other peoples opinions or experiences like this.


    I am look at Wimbledon UAL or Center school for speech and drama.

    Thanks

    Heya, I've moved this thread to a slightly more appropriate forum for you

    This thread may be worth looking at, too.

    I would suggest taking some time and actually getting around to going to open days, visiting etc and having a think about things rather than trying to get on a course starting this year. Okay, it's not the end of the world if you go to uni for a year and decide that it's not interesting or you want to drop out (which is good, better than doing something you're not interested in for a few years) but it wouldn't be ideal if the same thing happened again, so try to put yourself in the best position to make an informed decision.

    Good luck

    If you know you arent staying, then I would drop out. Its really moot, except you aboid messing them about and perhaps severing ties will give you better perspective.
    You arent seeking a transfer, so really you just need to be careful in choosing the next course. If you arent sure then take a year out and dont rush into it.
