    The first time I went to 'A' University was to study for a Business Studies course last year. However, the course I hated and didn't enjoy, so I left in January last year and reapplied to 'A' university for a Hospitality based course. However, Hospitality is a course that I like to work in, not to study in and now I am tempted to leave the course and pursue what I've always wanted to do (Primary Education).

    However, how would Universities look at my application seeing I've been and failed 2 times already and the same for the student finance funding side?

    Thank you

    So you've used two years of funding effectively? I think you could run into funding issues as you've used your gift year, unless you can claim cpr to get it back, i'd suggest that maybe you try and wait it out and if you want to go into primary education then you could get a primary education pgce funded afterwards.
    It's not going to look great on an application that you've left two courses i m afraid.
