I am at a point in my masters where I know I've gone this far, so I have to finish it. I have seven months left. I was just wondering if anyone has managed to quit their masters and how did it go, what led you to quitting, did you have a plan in place or was it just that's it I'm done? If you chose to stay, was it worth staying now that you are done? Did it help you get to the thing you wanted to do even though its got nothing to do with what you studied?

Basically, Is there a path for me if I do quit?

I would really appreciate the advice

Don't quit. You have already started it, better to complete it.

I know this I'm too much of a coward to quit, anyway.

Try to figure out why you want to leave and what are your future plans. It would be better IMO to finish it esp as it is 7 months rather than multiple years.

I mean if you drop out of a master's it's probably not that bad tbh, since you have undergrad to fall back on.

But no one really discusses it often, since most people choose to do a master's.. Are older, understand their strengths and weaknesses, pay exorbitant not covered fees etc.

I quit when I was 21 or so as I was having a hard time with my social anxiety and drinking too much. My Dad said if it's causing you so much stress just quit, and I did. The relief was immense. I went back later and stuided a different master's when I was in a different frame of mind.

During my MA, one of my peers decided that completing the master's component (i.e. the research dissertation) wasn't for him, so he stopped after the taught modules were complete and graduated with a PGDip (postgraduate diploma). Tbh, I don't know what he's doing now and whether he had a clear plan for afterwards, but it would be a lot less stressful to have a plan of action if you choose to leave.
