LEAVING UNIVERSITY AND RE-APPLYING FOR A NEW COURSE
We were contacted by worried parents concerned about their daughter. It was September and she was about to start her second year of a degree course even though she had doubts that it was the right course for her. They were looking for independent advice on changing courses. Their daughter was bright, but struggling to know where to focus her education and how this might lead into a future career.
Our consultant worked closely with the student to identify why she wasn’t enjoying her course. Together, they established that the course lacked sufficient intellectual stimulation for her and so looked at other course options. Whilst working closely with the daughter, our consultant kept parents in the loop, explaining the reasoning behind the chosen path and then supporting them through the process of leaving university to change course. Bearing in mind the time of year, speedy decision making and action was a must.
Within three weeks of the initial consultation with our consultant, the student applied, interviewed for and accepted a place at Cardiff University to read English and Philosophy. Her parents were delighted in their daughter’s renewed enthusiasm and motivation as their daughter threw herself into her new course with great success.
