    Hi TSR,

    Im studying Nutrition at university but Im not sure if I should carry on.

    Ive already failed my first year because I had a few problems outside of Uni.
    I dont have lots of money at the moment and I'll be in further debt after university.

    I liked the course and I do find it interesting but I dont know if its worth me getting into £40k+ debt. I also dont know if I'll get employed after Uni if I have a low grade either.
    I start my second year of university in October 12.

    Please provide some advice. I appreciate it.

    Hi,

    I think if you truly have a passion for the course then you should stay on the course and complete your degree. I'm positive you will achieve a great grade and you will get employed. Right now, I'm sure you are just having second thoughts because of the outcome of your first year but things do get better. I doubted myself a lot throughout my first and second year of uni. I realised that if I put my mind to it, I can achieve anything. I just graduated with a First Class Honours- something I thought was never possible. I am certain you will do just great. Keep going and stay positive.

    Have you sorted out your external problems that lead you to screw up the first year? If yes then go for it and knuckle down(does your first year even count? I know it doesn't in a lot of places), if no then put it off until you've sorted them out.

    Only go back if you feel you want to do the course and will do well on it.
    Becayse a degree is expensive and you have already failed year 1, then time to take stop and suspend your studies imo becayse you show no sign that you know what you want to do or you are confident you will be able to get good grades.

    I agree mate. I have just found out that the university has removed me from the course because of getting low marks last year and failing to attempt more than one assessments. University experience was nice, the people on my course were nice and I loved being around different people. But I do admit that University was probably not for me.
    I am now actively looking for work.

    I am now actively looking for work and hopefully going to a job interview tomorrow.
    The objective is to preserve your student financing , so in the future you can do a degree if you so wish. You might want to go and be ready to do something later.

    Take a break for the rest of the year then go back when you have your **** sorted. You don't have to leave completely, you can just talk to your uni and tell them you need a break for the year. It won't cost you anything and you won't have to reapply next year. I did this last year because I was having meltdowns and emotional breakdowns and was pretty much borderlining alcoholism at some point. Now I'm a little bit more stable I'm ready to back. All it takes is an email or phone call - whatever your uni prefer.
