So I lost a year in university from having to take a foundation year at a uni due to not getting results as I was taking my exams as an independant, I am now starting my first year and wondering, is there anyway I can make that year back up by something like taking more modules or transfering to a different uni?

As you can imagine, I really do desperately feel the need to make that year back up, what can I do?

Just to clarify, are you in your first year at uni now after doing a foundation year?

I don't really understand what you mean when you say 'make that year back up'. You're in first year, just like the rest of your cohort, so there isn't anything to catch up on.

What do you mean that you 'lost' a year, and why do you feel a need to 'make it up'? Are you just disappointed that you're not going to graduate at the same time as people you went to school with who went directly into first year of a degree? If so try not to compare yourself to them. Everyone goes through life and their education at their own pace and you're not behind in any way, shape, or form from having taken a foundation year.

Yes I am in first year, but I want to get into the world as early as I otherwise would have (I am in first year)

Unfortunately there is no fast track. You can only do 120 credits worth of modules per year, and a new university would only transfer you into Year 1. One year is nothing in the grand scheme of things, and it allowed you to do what you're doing now. You'll still have the same opportunities as those graduating a year before you - it really doesn't matter.

Having a year more of my life out in the world is important to me, so it does matter for me atleast.

Another way of 'going out into the world' earlier would be to change to part-time study alongside working, if that's an option for your course.
