no motivation at university Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
At the end of the day your main priority at uni is to study and complete a degree. Yes, having a social life is important but it shouldn’t necessarily be your focus. Maybe go to the library with your friends to complete your assessments together so you’re still getting work done but can also be in an environment with other students and not be on your own quite so much.
I have no motivation for university ATM. I really can't be bothered to study and I'm not enjoying it socially. I'm finding it hard to meet people and don't have anything to do for most of the week. All my friends are on my course but we barely go out and we're overflowed with work which I can't be bothered to do or even have an interest in. I know I'm doing the right course but I really don't feel motivated. I'm struggling here massively and feel like I'm wasting my time.
I don't feel like education is a priority right now and think a break could help me massively. I have a good tutoring job and have already applied through UCAS.
My mind keeps changing on whether to leave or stay but I'm really not enjoying university or have any motivation for it.
I'm a first year student.
It’s quite easy to find motivation. Go onto Facebook and find the least successful person you know. Ask yourself do I really want to be that person. That answer will be no. Therefore if you don’t want to be unsuccessful I suggest that you get on with it. One or two years of difficulty in a degree is nothing compared to the embarrassment of dropping out of your degree and not fulfilling your potential
