I’m really hating my course and I have found another that I like and it has a career pathway that I love. Has anyone else changed their course a year in? My current university doesn’t offer the new course so I will also have to move unis. Is this a wise idea??

If you hate your course and think you'd be happier elsewhere, go for it. Best to jump ship early before things spiral out of control.

Lots of people do this
You've missed the UCAS deadline for equal consideration but that doesn't mean you can't still apply - talk to the universities you want to transfer to and talk to your current tutor about getting a reference

i'm thinking of doing the same as my uni doesn't offer a combined course that i think is better. Is this a stupid choice or should i do it?

Applying elsewhere doesn’t withdraw you from your current course. You can explore your options and then make a decision in the summer

Talk to universities about whether they're still accepting applications and then apply

If a university won't let you skip 1st year then you don't have to accept an offer from them.

Transfer applications take time - comparing module content isn't a quick process and universities won't do it before you apply and are unlikely to have time to do it in the summer - so if you want to move then apply NOW to maximise your chances. You get 5 choices on UCAS - use them.
