    My Parents allow me to study away from home. Generally speaking there are a lot less opportunities for you to flourish in your field of choice if you are limited to studying within the area to which you live in. There may be better universities elsewhere, which would allow you to get a better degree and therefore more likely to get the job you want. My friend studied at UWE with 1 A* and 2A's at A level. Uwe is in Bristol and he lives in Bristol, so the only reason he went to uwe was because it was local (he would've opted for Bristol Uni but they don't offer his course). He studies there for 3 months and dropped out as he regretted his decision and thought he can get a much better education elsewhere. He now studies at kings and he's really happy about his decision.

    Sometimes limiting the area in which you are able to study at can possibly affect your ability to get a better job in the future. You can easily make friends elsewhere and have an enjoying experience at other Universities. If you do get into a better University and its elsewhere you should always go for that in order to better your life in the long term.

    Sorry if I was vague but I hope I helped you in some way

    Mum- "I don't want you to go to university far away just go to Kings College London!" (I don't even want to go KCL)

    Dad- "I haven't got too much of a problem with you moving away as long as you get high grades at A2 and you might want to consider going abroad for uni because uni here in the UK is a f u c king ripoff. And don't go to Sheffield or Nottingham for university. They're very dodgy places and you'll die. Go for Southampton instead because it's clean!"


    Different opinions but tbh that won't stop me from moving out to Southampton/Nottingham/Sheffield/abroad

    Can I ask, is everyone applying for uni to start in September 2016? If so what do you want to study and where have you applied to?

    My family generally would like me to stay home, as there's a very prestigious university here that'd be perfectly fine for what I'd like to do. Also, letting like 5 siblings go outside for uni costs quite a bit.

    Although if I got invited to Oxbridge or another good uni, my familywould support me in a heartbeat
