Changing or leaving your course


Every year some students consider changing or leaving their course. If you are in this situation, you need not feel alone. Think about the reasons why you want to change or leave your course as that can help identify the help you need.

  • Is the course not as interesting as you thought or are you finding it difficult? 
  • Is it the way your course is taught? 
  • Do you feel generally unhappy or unsettled? 
  • Do you have health or other personal issues? 
  • Is finance an issue?
