    I've been at Leicester uni for 4 days and I hate it. My flat mates are okay but they keep them selves to them selves, I have other friends at uni so this doesn't particularly bother me. I just really can't imagine studying for 3 years here and I don't know whether to withdraw from uni. I can't think of any reasons why I should stay but I can think of loads of reasons why I should leave. Any advice?

    What would you plan to do should you drop out of university? My advice would be to email your personal tutor at the university and discuss your options with them.

    4 days is way too early to be making a decision this important and this difficult to change if you get it wrong. You need to stick it out for at least a month before you have given it enough of a chance to form a stable decision. You haven't even done any proper studying yet.

    Hello ,

    When going to university and choosing universities, you should only apply to one that you really can imagine yourself at. Somewhere you can imagine your life being for the next three days and somewhere you can see yourself studying.
    Did you get this feeling before hand? If not, why did you apply to the university? - Not nit-picking but this was setting up for an unhappy experience.

    At the same time, if you did feel like it was the right place but suddenly your mind has been changed, you're only four days in and that's extremely early days. My advice always us push yourself to the end of your first term and see how you feel then - talk to your support at university and see what they advise. Get stuck into your course, learn to love your city, hang out with your friends and enjoy your time as best as possible but the bottom line is, most definitely give it a bit longer before you decide.

    Good luck

    I think I should take more time to decide,but I'm just so down, like I really wanted to enjoy it and I had really high hopes. I've been hanging out with friends and I've had introductory lectures and they've just bored me, I feel so dissapointed and I really can't imagine leaving like this for 3 years. I feel like each day I stay here is a waste of time as I feel right now it's inevitable that I will drop out. I can't think of so many reasons to leave and none to stay

    Hello ,

    It's understandable, it really is. I understand you're down but try and find things that lift your spirits. For example wake up to your favourite music, sing in the shower, watch your favourite TV show and movies. It won't be like this for three years - it isn't, make the most of everyday! If you think that way, that's what will happen. You can only be helped if you want to help yourself.
    Look at the silver lining of everything!
