    Right where to start, I have recently turned 23 and I am unsure to what I want to do with my life. I know what I want for my future and have my life goals in mind, I'm just unsure what career path I want to follow to achieve them goals, I went to university for 3 years but dropped out a couple of months before the end of my second year due to depression, which then leaves my third year as a resit due to the drop out... well too cut a long story short I decided not too proceed with my final year as I didn't enjoy what I was studying which left me with one other option employment, this has been a tricky area for me. I have very little work experience so trying to find a job that's willing to take me on has proven very difficult, it has been a year or so now since I left uni and I'm stuck deciding what I should do I only have one more year of Student Financing left and I've been considering finishing my degree through a degree apprenticeship instead of going back to university just because I would prefer the work experience but I have one issue if I was to proceed with that route I would have to start on Level 5 which would use my final year of student financing leaving me unable to cover the costs of studying my Level 6, It would also be the same if I was to re-enter uni life! so I am looking for any advice on what too do.. maybe from someone who's been in a similar situation but all advice is welcome

    You could look into a credit transfer and studying part time as the funding rules are different for part time.

    I'm looking into returning back to university, will be different to the previous one I attended. I spoke to my head tutor last night and they said transferring my current academic score over shouldn't be too difficult I would just have to speak with student finance in regards to what I'm eligible to claim from them. So I'll be looking over all that this week
