Hi guys,
I recently withdraw from my course (Politics & IR) to pursue my passion for culinary arts. I am somewhat conflicted about what I should write under the "previous education" section on my application form? Do I mention being withdrawn or is the study part completed? Or just say nothing?.......

any thoughts?

thank you x

For a UCAS application you need to include all prior study - it's a requirement.

If you're applying directly to another course provider outside of UCAS, then it's up to you. I don't see an issue including it though, you could just use it to illustrate how committed you are to your new path that you withdrew from your previous course to pursue it.

As above, you must include the incomplete study in your education history, but it’s up to you whether you address it in your personal statement. It should be fairly self explanatory if it’s a change of subject, but it’s fairly easily to spin it positively if you include it there.
