    I'm assuming that you have been unsuccessful in a resit and that this is why you only know now that you are in this situation. Also, I'm assuming that you have no grounds to appeal the decision to withdraw you from your course.

    Have you had any feedback on why you were unsuccessful? As it's a core module, this does raise the issue about whether the course was the best match for your interests and abilities. Unfortunately the chances of you being able to start in the second year of a psychology degree elsewhere may be very small - it will depend on the individual uni's view about your particular circumstances. Although it is at a very late stage for transferring for this year, there's nothing to stop you from contacting some possibilities and seeing what they say. However, you'd need to be phoning round on Monday as any uni prepared to consider you will most likely want you to complete a UCAS application, and the final deadline for that for 2016 entry is 20th September.

    However, there is a lot to be said for giving yourself time to take stock and consider all your options. You don't want to use up all your funding unless you are 100% sure that the course is right for you. I can understand that you are feeling somewhat disconcerted and disoriented at the moment, but it is important to understand what the issues for you really are, and not to rush into something you aren't ready for. Many many people complete their higher education later in life, and often get a great deal more out of it then than they would have done earlier.

    You should check with your current uni whether they will award you a Certificate of Higher Education for completing the first year. In any case, you should be able to 'bank' the credits with a view to using them in future, for example towards an Open University degree.
