    I am a 2nd year student at UCL. I've struggled with enjoying university since I started. I first started university in Exeter in 2014 and, as a consequence of my poor mental health, did not enjoy it, and was blaming this on Exeter being small and full of 'rahs'. I then decided to change unis, starting again at first year at UCL in 2015, and I am now in my second year. I only made this choice motivated by UCL's excellent reputation, however I do not feel comfotable in London and struggle to meet people I like. I realised that I took so many things for granted in Exeter, I miss the greenery, and the nice people I knew there, the easy-going pace of daily life.
    Should I stay in UCL and finish my degree?
    OR should I stop my UCL degree now and transfer into Exeter second year? That means I would graduate in 2019, instead of 2017 as I was supposed to.
    I know its not logical, but I really don't see myself living in London anyways, or working here.
    Please tell me what you think honestly. xx

    It d be very difficult to get that swap funded, if you can stick it out for a year then find a job out of London then I d do that.
