Dropping out of uni 2020Watch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
I've been feeling this way since after results day but thought it would change until I got to university but the opposite has happened. I have recently moved into university and I hate it. Covid has put a hold on a lot of activities and now the majority of my learning will be online--i might as well just stay in London and do online learning instead of paying for extra fees for things e.g. accommodation. I also thought i would enjoy the independence but its just felt like lonliness. We need to stay in our rooms more often and even when we do some people flout the rules and bring people from other universities which makes me feel uncomfortable. I do have some nice flatmates but I really don't feel like we will be good friends. Also, I feel like taking a gap year during this pandemic and then applying to a university in London will be beneficial for me as I have been given some opportunities for internships in the spring and summer. What should I do?
