    So, I'm currently studying maths at the University of Sheffield and I'm really not happy. I had a bit of a worry that I wasn't enjoying my course last semester but figured it could just be me struggling to settle in and then going through a break up and to give it more time. But now after coming back from Christmas I realise that I really don't want to dedicate the next 3/4 years of my life solely to this subject. I think I'd want to change to either straight philosophy or maths and philosophy and just wondered if anyone knows how easy it would be to change between these two subjects and how flexible the uni are with this kind of thing? Guessing I'd have to start again next year as I'd have missed a lot of lectures and possibly exams for philosophy but I'd be okay with that. I'd probably still stick this year out if I could

    Only the uni can tell you this as they will have their own policies. Get in touch with them directly and asap.

    They're not lenient at all, you'd need to start first year again. A few of my classmates asked to transfer from aerospace to mechanical which has ~50% similar content in first year, they were told they would have to either pass first year with a 2:1 and transfer back to first year or drop out and reapply.
