Tertiary education

My son finished matric last year and was confused about what to do at tertiary level. He just knew he wanted to design. We found out and design did not come on its own. He got a place to do electronic engineering. He did not fair well in the 1st half of year. He dropped out. he pattern of studying shocked his system. He is at home now, applied for Architecture. Worried next year he is not a child to really study. Already wasted R11000 last year. Dont have money to waste next year . Please help.
