    I’ve just started a sports journalism course and due to the uni not fulfilling my expectations I want to leave but I have until Friday if I don’t want to pay the fee. I want to do marketing, question is do I drop out now and reapply for next year or do the year and see where it takes me? I’ve literally been so stressed because if I don’t get any places next year I’m screwed.

    Hiya:hi:

    I've popped your thread into this sub-forum so that you'll hopefully get the replies you're after.

    I think you need to make your decisions based on what career you want to pursue. Even you want to be a journalist (whether a sports journalist or otherwise) then a journalism degree would make sense. You don't have to specialise into sports journalism at degree level to be a sports journalist as far as I'm aware you don't even need a qualification in journalism to get a job in the field.:nah:

    You might want to think what about your current course you don't like. It may be the university life in general or your university in particular which doesn't sit right with you.
