    Hi, I'm studying computer science at university and am in the second year. I'm not enjoying my course and don't really feel like I have learned anything. I'm interested in applying for other university which offer preferably maths or physics courses as I think I will enjoy these subjects much better and learn more. My university doesn't offer these university courses as it's not really known for teaching these subjects. I was wondering what you think about how I should go about applying for these courses and if you know how I would fund them (I'm already 2 months into my course in second year).
    Edit: I got 3 A-levels (3* C) in maths, physics and computing. And achieved a first in my first year of university.

    I assume you mean you want to change degree and do either maths or physics instead?

    Funding wise - you either need to have mitigating circumstances to get your gift year back or you need to pay for first year fees + any living that isnt covered by the basic maintenance loan (you will have funding for the rest of the next degree)

    To apply for the new course you go through ucas as normal
