    I went through something similar in my third year. I had friends but lost them and I hated my course. If I were you I would complete your first year and then see if you still hate the uni. If you like it great finish your degree but if you don't I would try and transfer to a university that you like. Have a look around and attend an open day before you confirm that you want to transfer. Keep attending socials and different events and you'll soon make friends. I am now in my final year and I still don't really think that I have a good set of friends. Uni is very different to school/college

    It will take time. Perhaps it’ll take another week, another month or perhaps longer. But it’ll happen. You’ll find people you just click with and you’ll have the best time ever

    It depends if the course you are currently studying matches the course you want to study in terms of module content. It is best to speak to the university admissions team and tell them what you have been studying, what you want to study and the module content of your current course and they will be able to tell you if you will need to repeat first year.

    Try and see if you can get into University accommodation - someone may have left. It's the best way to meet loads of people from different courses. Or maybe organise an event for those on your course, to get to know them better. Hang in there ..... good luck!

    Yeah I can totally relate, because I was like that the first few weeks in college. This might be hard for some people, but try joining and being active in clubs. I joined one minority club & one huge club and was able to click immediately in both. I believe joining a minority club works best! Luckily my close friend is an intern to be a board member for one of the biggest clubs on campus and that helped me create relationships immediately (just by being really close friends&roommate with one mucho popular gal). Hopefully this helps!
