    The title says it all really.
    If I'm not enjoying my course at my current uni would dropping out and reapplying for the same course elsewhere be a totally ludicrous thing to do?? (love my uni btw this is purely course based)
    Many of the core modules are the same but the optional ones sound at least a little bit more interesting to me. Don't know whether it would be worth wasting a year/9k for though...

    The title doesn't say much given that you haven't said what the course is. Some degrees are very similar (eg Law) because unis are obliged to teach particular topics; others are very different (eg History) because the university can teach what they like. Yours appears to be in the former camp. How many modules are similar, how many are different? Does the situation change in subsequent years?

    I suppose so sorry...Im doing Biology.
    In the first year its almost identical, 1/2 modules different as everyone has a pretty standard foundation year when it comes to Biology degrees.
    But next year when things get more specialised, where i am currently offers the majority of their modules in the areas I'm not finding enjoyable. Looking at somewhere like Southampton where optional modules include things like animal behaviour and physiology which appeal to me a lot more than plants and genetics :\ I will still be taking some of the same modules in second year so dont know whether its just worth putting up with it for 3 years.

    It's up to you, but you can explore your options about a transfer into second year at other unis without any issues. Have a look at http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1781424
