    So I'll start from the beginning before people start calling me an idiot (because I already know I am one). When I first started university, I was doing history. However, I was very confused as to what I wanted to do. My extended family pestered me about doing something more "difficult". Out of stupidity, I listened and transferred to law. I absolutely hate this course. I am not motivated to go into class, do my assignments, it literally depresses me. I suffer from mental health problems, type 1 diabetes and family issues at home, which means I'm not able to go back home and drop out for this year. I feel so lost and confused. I'm hoping I will be able to switch back to history next year, will this be possible? Also, will student finance be able to fund this "extra" year that I've failed? I'd like to be more optimistic and say I'll scrape a pass, but with my mental health deteriorating I don't think this will be possible. I feel quite alone and upset, and I wish I had a course that I enjoy to distract me from life I guess. can anyone help?

    Everyone gets funding for one extra year. So as long as you have only taken one extra year you can drop out and begin again. If you want to stick with the same uni for next year you would have to see what they say - they may ask you to reapply through UCAS, or they may say you can apply internally and not need UCAS. If you want a different uni then you would need to do a UCAS application.
