So I took a year in uni last year but hated the course so no I'm starting again but it's a 4 year course, I really like the course but I'm just scared that once I graduate I'm going to be in a lot of dept and it'll take me a while to find my feet. Also already the fact that all my peers are half way through uni makes me sad because I have another 3 and a half years. Will graduating at 23 effect me?

No?

The youngest medical graduates are 23 years old, unless you started med school < 18.

Even graduating at 53 isn't old. A legend here on TSR graduated in their 70s.

It's the difference between a 44 year career or a 45 year career!

What are you studying. Do you even want to be at uni at all. The age thing makes no difference at all. The worrying thing is that instead of enjoying your course you are worrying about student debt and wishing it was over already so you could be earning. Maybe you should just get a job.

I do worry about my finances a lot. Coming from quite a poor background I find it hard to juggle uni and a part-time jobs. And I am doing biology which I enjoy accept the human side and I was told that after this year I would be able to specify to genetics however I just recently found out that my student finances won't let me so now I'm in even more of a pickle.
I do really like uni and I want to be able to get a career I am proud of. Its just the whole student finance worries me as I have no space to fail and now I will have no space to specify.
