I am studying at Cardiff university and I am doing maths. I am not enjoying my course and I feel like it will be too difficult for me to do for 3 years. Everything else about uni I love though and I really don’t want to drop out. I have thought about changing course but there is no space on anything I would be interested in doing. What should I do?

There is no should. Its all relative. If you really want to do a different course at that uni, and there's no space this year, then you could drop out, take a gap year and reapply next year.
Or if it's essential that you study now, is there a way to do a late transfer to another uni?
But if it's really a case of 'must study here' 'must study now' and 'must study a currently unavailable course' then something has to give. Is maths so wrong for you? Have you fully discussed other options at that uni?
Hth.

Hi there,

I'm so sorry to hear that you're in this situation. I'd recommend your first port of call is to speak to your head of department / academic advisor and seeing what your options are - sometimes just sitting with someone might be a good idea to just get it off your chest and get the relevant advice for you They're there to help you out!

see if you can swap in year 2. Maths is a great course so perhaps you can gain entry into a year 2 course next year [assuming you pass the 1st year]. How about physics?
