    HI everyone , first of all i would like to say thanks for reading this thread.

    i have completed 2 years doing business at university going into my third next month , and since day one I've hated the university and the subject . Due to family problems i was unable to move after the first year . Thereafter i hoped my passion for this career would increase . But after my second completed year i am unhappy . I can't see myself working in that field , and honestly am so much demotivated . The only reason why i have come 2 yrs is family pressure .

    Some months ago i spoken to family , and put in an ucas application for law at a different university . I feel much more happy doing that course , and now after results day i got accepted into that university . I dont know what to do , i want to move and feel much more motivated doing that subject , than carrying , third year is going to be a lot harder and i dont see myself working hard enough to succeed if i am honest. Some people at uni said I'm still young enough to do so but I'm confused .

    Can someone help me decide what to do ? as its just not university its student finance too , what happened to the finances ?
    How quickly should i tell either university where i am going ?

    Thank you everyone again for reading

    Hiya,

    Well firstly go ahead with what makes you happy, don't pressure yourself to do something you dislike. But you do mention yourself not working hard enough to succeed. Then question yourself what is the point really of changing course and studying that if you're not going to do well. If I was in your position I would just complete the last year, that way you'll be a graduate. Then maybe go on to finding work experience in a field you're interested?

    Don't know how finances work, sorry about that.

    As soon as you are sure about your next steps with your life make the university aware of it.

    I hope this helps.

    You dont say what you want to do as a career.

    You dont say how well you have been doing.

    Oprion 1 continue.

    You have used 2 years funds.
    You say you have family problems, but not what they were and whether they woyld qualify as mitigating circs. Someone die etc? Something that made you perform poorly? You say it prevented you from moving.

    You say you are unmotivated and unhappy? have you been diagnosed with depression or any serious medical condition?

    So you carry on and complete your degree, but with what grade? its one more year. You will get finance for 3rd year.

    Option 2

    Move to the new course.
    Advantage reset exams, happier and enjoy degree.

    imo SF wont finance you except for the ength if your new course.

    The mistake imo was staying for the 2nd year, when you should have just restarted degree after year 1, which would have got you finance for the rest of your degree. I am unsure whether its 1 or 2 years they would finance. The finance would not be forthcoming for your first year and maybe not for your second year. That means you are finding £9,000 plus living costs for each of those years.

    Alternative
    If you cant finance one ir two years then your option is to finish your degree, do well and get a 2:1. If you wnat to be a solicitor then get a TC and get the firm to finance a GDL and the LPC for you.

    You should have checked sooner. Please post on SFE forum or contact SFE to check, but I think finance will be limited.

    Its at least your first year that you will have to finance yourself. Check with SFE or ask PQ.

    It's not embarrassing at all. People do degrees and realise that's not what they love. Do what you like, that way you're more likely to do well. Good thing you've come to notice your choice before completing the degree.

    So what makes you happy. I hope the advice I gave earlier helped you.
