    I'm in my second year of my creative writing degree in Derby and while I'm enjoying it, I'm incredibly lonely and feeling depressed all the time. I moved into a house share where I feel like a total outsider. This weekend I spent three days staying with one of my very good old friends in York. I had such an amazing time and coming back home to one word conversations and feeling unwanted made me burst into tears. Aside from the course and a few friends, I hate it down here.

    I'm thinking about transferring to York St. John uni as they do a creative writing course. The problem is, I like my course but I have no motivation to work towards it due to feeling so down all the time. So it feels kind of pointless. I also haven't managed to get a job, have no savings and I'm on thin ice with my parents because of an argument over the summer. I've already paid my rent three months in advance (until January) and don't know how the hell I would pay the extra rent in York unless I got a job immediately.

    I just feel so trapped. I'm miserable down here but I don't think I can afford to get out. I don't know what to do

    It's very rare that you would get either an in-year transfer or a 3rd year transfer. So the best that could happen is that you could drop out now, and restart second year at York St John in September.

    But a uni transfer isn't going to instantly make you happy. It's more likely that you're thinking the grass is always greener - realistically, the course is no different and you still don't have many friends at the new uni. It's not a magic wand everything better.
