    Hi guys!

    I was just wondering if any of you knew of or had taken a gap year after first year?
    Been really struggling through this year financially and to an extent mentally, and I'm really not sure that after I complete this year I'm actually ready to continue for another three years. I'm 1st year of Art at uni It's been pretty hard in general and I would like to know if this is an option or just unwise.

    Taking a break mid course is usually fine - and much better than battling through if you're struggling with money or motivation.

    Speak to your student records/registry team and they'll explain how it would work if you take a break and what you need to do in order to make it happen.
