    So I've got an offer from two universities: the first one has an excellent reputation, requiring me to move away from home and would take a toll on my bank account

    Bbut the second, Russell group uni would allow me to live at home, less travelling, save money etc but I'm more keen on the first one (in terms of course and freedom wise)

    I would get maintenance loans, bursaries etc but I dont want to be too much in debt

    Which would you chose and why?

    Much obliged x

    Its a personal choice, so just d the pros and cons.

    As you described it i'd do the first one because living away is part of the uni experience. Do your sums if its London though. Better degree as well although you should be where you can be happy and theres no guarantee you will get the same grade.
    Get a job and save what you can as well.
