I write already voluntarily and i've had my articles published on blogs/websites/magazines before but I just don't know how to make a career out of this.

There doesn't seem to be a set path and it's a changing industry so idrk what to do. Im studying english at uni now but not really enjoying it.

Publishing your articles is a great start. You could also look to get work experience or internships at newspaper or magazine offices as this will help with applications and making connections. You could also join the Student Newspaper at university.

Expand your experience, skillset and contacts.
Uni student newspaper, internships, short journalism courses, freelance articles.
Expand the range of your articles to cover a diverse remit of topics, maybe with photographs.
