Two years ago I got a BSc first class which landed me a position in a top UK university MSc programme. Due to a combination of personal circumstances and mental illness I'm now failing the course. I'm now in my second (repeat) year.
My question is: How should I mention that in an interview?
In my CV I say that my enrollment is ongoing expecting to graduate in September. This is not a lie. Things I've come up with so far:
Don't mention the course at all.
This leaves me with a 2 year gap. In that period the only work I did was the website of an escort service (since I'm anonymous I might as well get it all out). I think some employers may find this morally questionable so I'm prepared to say that I've signed an NDA (which can be easily arranged with the client). No I didn't hire the client's services, I met her through a mutual acquaintance. So not much work experience to work with to explain the gap (apart from side projects I've recently started).
Simply mention I'm enrolled in a course.
This is what I'm doing now. Employers expect a student to be able to work part-time or not at all, unlike me (I'm looking for a full-time position). So this solution may raise some eyebrows.
In any case, should I mention the fact that I'm failing my course, and how much detail should I give?
I'm a regular user but the issue is very embarrassing. I may not be able to add further details as I'm posting as a guest (I even went through Tor). I hope the question has the necessary details and I apologize I probably won't be accepting an answer or responding to your comments. For these reasons I'd like to thank you for your input in advance.
