I feel so so stupid. I went to uni and didn’t like the course so dropped out after a month or so and reapplied for a uni close to home the following year. I’m now at the end of first year and I regret going to a uni close to home (I stayed in halls) so much as the town is boring as I’ve been going there my whole life. I wish I went to a city uni further away I wish I could transfer and go into second year at a city uni but I feel like I can’t move onto my third uni😖😖

If you knew your home town was boring, why apply there?

If you change to a new uni, how can you know you will be happy there, either?

The reason I went to the close uni is because I didn’t want to go far from home but over the last year I’ve really grown into myself and don’t feel the same way. I didn’t find it boring before I stared living at uni and I thought being at uni would make it different but it hasn’t.

I guess I just think a new environment would be more exciting?

Hi!
I know changing Uni for the second time isn't easy or ideal but ultimately do what makes you happy. Or, if you decide to stay put, maybe do a placement year in a different city (if your course and Uni allow you to do that). Maybe even look into doing a year abroad!

Hope this helps!
