I got into a degree I am not enjoying at all to get a job I do not want to get only because I was attracted by the salary. It was a stupid mistake and I feel I ****** up my life.

It’s never too late to try find your passion and change your degree. How old are you And what are you studying rn?

I am in my first year. Thanks for the encouragement. Changing degree is not an option due tu a number of circumstances.

did you ask your uni about changing to another course that you might enjoy more? It's still pretty early in the year.

Dw, I do actually study law, but I had already excluded commercial law.

Tbh I think I'm slightly abut to do the same thing as I've recently applied for a degree I'm really not that passionate about but which I think I can get into good unis for (Classics). Not really sure how to deal with this problem either...

Assuming that you're in your early 20s, you (probably) have plenty of time to either apply your training and skills to an area that you enjoy, or try something else.

Why on earth would you read Classics if you're not passionate about it? I'd change now, before you really regret it.

Have you thought about transferring to another course?

Have you thought about leaving and taking time out to figure out what you actually want to do?

You’re in control of your life and it’s up to you to change it around if you’re not happy.
