    I'm currently studying Politics and Spanish at the University of Edinburgh. However I'm not really sure if I'm enjoying my course (and the uni) as much as I should be. Before I applied I considered applying for Primary Education and did do work experience in a primary school. I'm wondering if maybe I would enjoy this degree more. I know I would probably have to re-apply through UCAS for first year. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! (UCAS, what the course is like etc)

    As far as my politics degree goes I would probably do a secondary education degree after, however I'm not so sure if I can handle the 4 years if I continue feeling the way I am just now. Either way, I would like to be a teacher.

    My best advice would be to have a look at some courses online, do a bit of research, look at the modules and see if it excites you.

    What part of your current degree was not what you expected?
