Right, so I'm currently a second year undergraduate studying computer science and I'm absolutely lost. I'm struggling to learn programming and it's taking me a really long time to understand some of the coding. I don't know why but even after learning something I just feel awful. I've tried getting help from the teachers but they hardly teach anything. They say that a lot of the second year is self study. They've given us a book called "Introduction to java programming by Daniel Liang" and I really hate the book because I find it difficult to learn from lol. The first year of my degree was very easy because the teachers would actually teach and the work load was far less. I just don't know what to do at the moment. I feel like this course isn't for me, I really want to drop it and do an apprenticeship maybe, reason being because I feel that they'd actually teach me how to do something and I'll be able to develop the skills and experience that's needed in a workplace. My parents however are pretty strict on this and say nope you're not going to drop computer science, you've got loans to pay for now and they're going to go to waste.
To summarise: I'm hating computer science and I regret choosing it now, should I drop out of university for an apprenticeship? or should I carry on studying?
would it be a good idea to drop out of university?
