I would email your uni because some dont charge if you drop out within the first two weeks but others do

Hey Randomuser67892,

Online learning is completely different to the on campus experience and is not always for everyone, especially if you weren't expecting to study that way. However there are universities that do specialise in online learning which may change your perceptions of it. It might be worth finding out what your current universities policy is and sticking to it a little longer - you never know you may begin to enjoy it. As an online learning student myself I actually decided to study that way and it was not easy to start with, especially juggling it with work and the fact that I didn't have physical classmates only virtual ones, but now I love it so much I would never study any other way!

Same. I just looked at my timetable for the next 2 weeks and it's all via zoom university. I'm yet to see my actual lecture hall and study campus. I just find it really unnerving being on camera and seeing myself staring back at me when I'm trying to concentrate on what's being said. Which is no Bueno as somebody who suffers from BDD and anxiety

We're all just expected to be okay with it. I mean that's fine but I don't understand the sense in being allowed to live under the same accomodation as one another, sharing the same facilities but heaven forbid we sit in the same lecture hall for an hour. They seem quite happy to still collect rent and the full tuition fee

Hey Popsiclez,

If you don't feel comfortable being on camera have it switched off to start to with and only use it if you feel confident in doing so. I have had plenty of zooms where mine has been turned off, I do suffer from being 'Zoomed out' from time to time and get very distracted if things go on for too long. I'm sure you won't be the only person to do that, it is difficult meeting a whole group of strangers for the first time physically let alone on a zoom call during a pandemic!

All the best
