I started my uni course in september doing computer games technology and since I have been doing it for nearly two months I just have no motivation to do the course at all now. I just sit in my room most nights watching things rather than doing work because I just don't feel like this is what I want to do and this is the wrong course for me. I am planning on having a meeting with my personal tutor next week but I think dropping out may be the best thing for me.
First of all,
If I drop out now or soonish will student finance take back any of the maintenance loan they have already given me?
How much tuition will need to be paid?
Is there anyway I can get out of my accommodation contract?

Hi, as far as I am aware, if you drop out now, you won't receive any more maintenance payments and you will have to pay back what you were given. In terms of tuition, you will need to pay back in proportion to the time that you have studied. You need to get into contact with student finance as soon as possible, you would pay back under the same conditions as normal (when you earn over £21,000?).
In terms of your accommodation contract, you need to speak to the person responsible (accommodation manager or landlord). Most likely you will be liable for the rest of the term/year. In that case, try to find a replacement who can take over your contract completely (so you wouldn't need to pay anything) or get it at a reduced rate (you would pay some of the cost, but you would lose less money)
