    Long story short, I want to leave the university I'm at now. I'm struggling to settle in here to say the very least. It makes me miserable. I like my course, that's not the problem, I just don't like the place and I made a mistake going to a university so far away from home. I want to drop out of university this year and attend University of Liverpool, which is where my family and friends are. I've discussed this with my family and various other people and it definitely seems like what is best for me. However, I don't know how to go about doing this. I've got the grades to attend the uni, but reapplying and actually trying to leave here i'm unsure of. Also how would this affect my student loan? Anyone who has been in my position have any advice, that would be very much appreciated!

    Ok if you have made your mind up and have ruled out sticking out the year then transferring into year 2 at Liverpool you do the following. You cna also talk to welfare and a student adviser.

    1. Contact the department to confirm what the official withdrawal procedure is. You can also talk to a student advisor or fees. the website is poor for this direct info and normally its a form which needs signing off by your department plus student fees. Thats the date they calculate fees.

    2. Notify student accommodation. You will almost certainly be responsible for paying rent till you find a replacement.

    3. Notify SFE that you have left. they will ask for any maintenance they consider is an overpayment. immediately. You can ask for an arrangement and up to 60 days of discretionary payment.

    4. Any other debt goes to normal student debt repayable once you ran over £21 k as 9% of the excess.

    5. Reapply as normal to UCAS.

    6. It affects student loans in that you get funding for a full degree plus 1 gift year.
    7. You can use the gift year as your chance to change your mind and that leaves you with full funding for a different degree i,e the one at Liverpool. They then get much stricter so make sure its he degree you want and at the place you wish.

    Think thats everything. Do it as quick as possible then get a job and earn money. You might need to offer a discount to offload the uni accommodation.
