So I do an art course: Film. It's at an all arts Uni also.
Last year(2nd Semester) I started having serious doubts about my course, and about Uni in general. The course I'm doing is good, but I don't think it's for me. I want to do something more academic I've realized like Biology something I always wanted to do but thought I wasn't smart enough for. So I'm looking into foundation course.
As for uni life, Last year I had a few friends but they were always busy and we only saw each now and then.So I was very much alone. This caused me to fall into the worst depression and loneliness stage I've ever experienced. I tried to get help, but the uni services said it'd take 6 weeks for me to get an appointment and even then the counselor didn't help in the way I thought I needed (I guess I should have been more patient). I wanted to leave then are there.
Despite this my summer at home was great, I felt a lot better and more positive and decided Maybe I should go back and see if anything changes.
It hasn't, Now I'm in my 2nd week back, and it's all happening again. I know and pretty sure I want to change course and uni. But I'm not sure if it's worth it now that I'm in the second year. On top of that, I want to change course, meaning I'd have to start again in year 1 or year 0. More money..., I know I could transfer, but film degree credits aren't worth any to any Bsc Degree.
Thank you if you managed to read all this, any help or advice would be much appreciated.
