    I study BSc Chemistry in a reputatable university in my country.However i am not satisfied either with the subject i choose or the way it is taught.I grew up in the middle east and came here to do medicine.However i did not get into a medicine university.
    Tired of the different way of teaching in which i doubt i can excel,i decided to apply to UK in a business foundation to pursue Accounts and finance after foundation.I did not apply for a Science degree beacuse they are very expensive.Even if i get into business, i would have to work and afford myself.My family's financial conditions are not good.I'm so confused if i should go to UK or not.My university does not allow change of major or i would habe done that
    My questions are
    1 i have wasted 3 years already in the medicine process.So i should i waste another year of my life trying to pursue a degree i have no knowledge of? means going for the business degree
    2 will i be able to afford myself in the UK through a part time job?
    3 the chances of me completing graduation and then goingting to UK for masters in UK are very thin because the way the subjects are taught here,i doubt i can score well even if i work hard.so this is probably my only chance to go abroad.Should i go for it?

    I'm not sure if just studying in the UK is going to help your case. You need to have a plan for what you want to do first and then work towards it. If you really want to do medicine then work towards it but if not then find something else you want to do and work towards that. You cannot come to the UK and just sustain yourself with a part time job as you are only allowed to work 20h a week and probably won't get a visa without at least some funds to show already.
