I want to drop out of University?

    • Thread Starter

    Right, well I want to drop out of University. Although I've only been here 4 weeks I have been extremely unhappy, I don't enjoy my course, I don't know what course I even want to do anymore. I'm really homesick ,getting upset all the time for no reason and I'm lacking motivation. Already I've missed 6 Lectures and now need to have a meeting with my personal tutor over my attendance.

    I spoke to my parents about moving back and they basically said I cant come home and need to stay..... how nice right???? So I basically have a unsupportive family, I'm already struggling with my course, and now I'm getting into debt for something I cant see myself succeeding in.

    Any advice guys I would appreciate as I'm in a **** situation at the moment.

    I'm sure there are a lot other students who feel the same way at the moment.

    Please go and speak to someone, anyone, try the Students Union first.

    The staff at the uni can tell there is a problem and that is why they have arranged a meeting with your personal tutor.

    The uni want you to pass your course and have a successful life, telling everyone on the way what a great uni it was.
    They will do what they can to help, but you need to be honest with them.

    BTW What course are you on and why did you choose it?
