Hi, I am considering dropping out of university as I’m finding my course too intense and not the career path I want to peruse anymore. However I am staying in halls at the minute & have my accomodation for next year booked. Also, I have received a bursary since being here as I’m on a nursing course. Can anyone roughly say how much it costs to drop out as I’m unhappy but worried about the financial side?

Divide it up. Studying isn't fun to begin with, and forcing yourself through a study marathon will only make it worse. Dividing your work into manageable chunks and rewarding yourself when you finish each chunk will make studying (more) fun.

Sleep. Don't underestimate the importance of those eight hours of zzz's every night! Getting a good night's rest will sharpen your focus and improve your working memory.

Hello,

Sorry to hear you're unhappy with your course at the moment.

My understanding is that you would pay back your student loans the same way as if you were to graduate - once you're earning over the threshold. It would probably be worth speaking to both your uni and Student Finance England to clarify this, and to discuss any financial implications in terms of the bursary. In regards to the accommodation, you could contact your provider and discuss your options. It may be unlikely that you receive anything for this academic year, but they might refund you for next year if you've paid anything towards the costs already. This is probably the best way to get the most accurate information so that you can truly make an informed decision.

All the best!

Hi

You don't get fined or anything of that nature for dropping out. But dropping out would mean you still have student debt to pay, only after earning above the threshold: https://www.gov.uk/repaying-your-stu...start-repaying

If you are worried about your course thought, perhaps you might like to read my blog on switching course at university, this may give you some guidance: https://www.port.ac.uk/news-events-a...-at-university

Hope this helps
