It can take time to settle into your course and new life at college or uni. Sometimes students may want to transfer to another course or different uni or college - or they might not want to study any more.
There's 4 things you should consider.
1. Identify what exactly you're not happy with
Ask yourself, are you not happy with:
- the course itself
- a particular subject
- your accommodation
- personal reasons
- career choices
2. Speak to someone
Before you take any action, speak to someone at your college or uni straight away. This could be:
- course tutors and lecturers
- your student adviser
- welfare service
- career services
3. Getting financial help
Speaking to financial advisers on campus can help you with any worries you have about funding entitlement.
4. What credits you gain if you change or leave
If you do decide to change course or leave, find out if you gain credit for the parts you've completed so far.
