    Have you worked out why you dont enjoy it?
    Does that mean you wont enjoy it as a career?
    What would be the point in continuing?

    Ask SFE but I think the gift year applies so you could apply fro a different health related degree. Check with SFE and have a think about ir.

    Unfortunately, unless you're filthy rich then changing degree would result in not being eligible for student finance.

    The only reason you got accepted for the one you're currently in is because its exempt from the 'equivilant qualification' rule.

    On a serious note though, you've done a degree, you've completed a first year of a different subject, do you really know what you want to do with your life?

    It sounds like a degree in any other subject would be a mistake for you too.

    What about applying for general graduate positions? There's no point doing another degree if you not even that enthusiastic about it

    Midwifery is a tough gig, I had a colleague in a call centre who had quit her position and took a step down to an NHS band 3 role because of how much she disliked the work. If you've come to a realisation within the first year you don't enjoy it I'd suggest getting some guidance from an actual midwife graduate to really clarify if it's a case that it's not for you, or if you're just having doubts centred around the degree itself that once you've graduated and began the hands-on role might not be an issue.

    As for another degree, unless you have a role in mind that requires a degree I don't see the utility on gaining another undergraduate degree, especially in a media subject. It's not a field renowned for its prospects.

    Have you considered a masters degree?
