    I'm currently studying Biology. I hate my degree, find the content dull and uninspiring and I know it's not for me. I've considered dropping out several times (if my heart isn't in it and I'm not gonna do my best then is it not just a waste of time and money?).

    I don't have a solid career plan but I do have passions and things that I enjoy (none of them are biology sadly). Whilst I'm at uni, I have a fair amount of free time ("independent study time") so I was thinking that instead of dropping out I could use this time to develop my passions and work out what I want to do after uni.

    The obvious answer here is to get work experience but I don't even know what type of thing to go for! I feel quite limited here because I'm in the middle of nowhere with no car, so opportunities that are more than 5 miles away aren't realistic!

    How do I go about developing interests and passions into potential careers?

    Could you not switch courses?
    It's too late now, I'm a quarter of my way through second year! And my uni doesn't offer anything that appeals
