Things don't always work out as planned and you may wonder if you have chosen the right course or university, or whether study is right for you at the moment.
Many students feel like this, especially in their first term. Most stay and graduate successfully, a few change course and even fewer leave.
It is important not to rush into a decision until you have fully considered all your options and any implications. It is best to seek advice early on so that you are not struggling alone.
There are complicated rules that affect whether you can get future Student Loan or Local Authority funding, so it's important to fully consider the implications of your decisions.
If you are thinking about transferring to another course, taking a year out or withdrawing, the university offers an online resource that explains your options and outlines the support available (opens in a new window).
If you are an international student residing in the UK with a student visa and you are considering leaving your course, you are strongly advised to contact the International Student Adviser at email@example.com. Leaving your course without getting advice first can have serious implications.
