    I'm studying engineering and only in 10 hours a week (Second year). The lectures are slow. The tutorials are even slower. I feel like I'm wasting 9k a year tbh. I don't know if I'm expecting too much because my coursemates are saying the pace is perfect/too quick.

    Does that mean dropping out of uni altogether.

    As you have activated year 2 funding then you do not have enough left for a new degree, so your only other option is to find a uni to take you as a transfer into year 2.


    Your choice.

    I cant offer advice either way as its your choice, just weigh up the pros and cons.

    You have to i'd someone wiling to take you into second year. I can empathise with being on a rubbish course and would transfer if the option was open and it cost me a gap year. If you left for compelling personal reasons and with GP advice, then heres a chance you could put a CPR claim in and get sfe to disregard this years funds.

    You’ve already started using year two funding. If you take a year out and reapply you will have to pay the first years fees yourself.
    Is it really worth it?

    Try the Open University. You can go as fast or as slow (to a degree) as you like. My course hasn't started but I'm three weeks ahead. It's also £958 for 60 credits so just under £2k for one year (about £5k a year in England). The degrees are accredited and recognised. The OU is a well respected distance learning uni. They accept transfers of credits as well.

    A 2.1 is a 2.1. And try to get some work experience (volunteer work, interships, networking etc).

    You've come this far, I think you should finish it, after how far you've come.

    You could be able to transfer into the 2nd year at a different university.

    Why bother, if the pace is slow you must have it pretty easy right? Like if it's so slow for you you must surely be easily averaging a first? So get a good grade and enjoy the time you have left, get a job and save up some money or something, sounds nice to me
