Your University Questions, Answered.

What can I do if I don't like my course? Jamie, Stafford


Our Answer:

I think every potential university student would thank you for asking this one- it's a common worry.  

If you start your course and think you've made the wrong choice, the first thing to do is to speak to your academic adviser -  at UEA every student is assigned an adviser from day one, and I am sure other universities do this as well. They will discuss your options with you. It may be that the course modules offered in year 2 are more suited to your interests as you start to specialise more, so its best to wait and see.

You might also have the option of changing to a similar course, for example if you studied a semester of English Literature you may be able to change to the Film and Television Studies course. Hannah, one of the UEA student bloggers found herself in this very situation. Have a look at how this worked out for her. 

Of course, the best thing to do is to choose the right one from the outset. Have a look at our advice on choosing a course to help you decide which degree to choose to get it right first time around.
