Has anyone ever changed university after first year, or contemplating it this year? I'm in my first year at the University of Portsmouth and I've been hating it for the entire year. I applied for a year exchange and got accepted, but decided I don't want me uni experience to be as it is right now.

Just wondering if anyone has done similar, feels similar/knows what to do. @ me if you want

Lots of people decide they've made a mistake in their choice of subject/university and leave after the first year. If you like your subject but hate the university then you can try to transfer (you need to hurry up if you decide to do that, the final UCAS deadline is approaching). You can read more about the transfer process here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=1781424

If you want to do a totally new degree then you should not go on an exchange or begin your second year. You will still get a full student loan to cover a new degree as long as you leave during or just after the first year.
