At the moment I'm studying a foundation degree in engineering, and was looking at going on to study civil engineering. I started off enjoying this degree, then became massively depressed with it. I never went in, messed up exams and coursework. I am doubtful I can go on to study civil now. Being younger, I really wanted to study pharmacy, or something 'sciencey', but when it came to choosing a levels, I changed my mind and went on to pursue and engineering degree, something I regret as growing up I had a passion and even enjoyed science based subjects. I can withdraw now and save 50% of the degree cost. I am thinking about working full time somewhere to save some money till september, then do an access course named 'Access to HE - Science (Biochemical)'. This will allow me to study pharmacy, but also keep the door open to study civil. Overall, I've wasted a year and am in pointless debt. However, would people agree this is nothing to worry about if I'm miserable doing something. I also want to ask if anyone has went on to do pharmacy or any form of engineering from an access course? How was it? If I work hard and am dedicated, is 70% a reasonable target. Also, how have people found balancing work and studies, i've been able to live off my student loan (lazy I know), but the access course is at college where no loan is recieved, but I'd only be in 3 days. Another question i have is what field am I most likely to get a job in- civil engineering or pharmacy?
I'm really worried and fed up at the moment, so any advice is appreciated so much
