    I don't even want to live away for uni but because my father doesn't want me to it kind of makes me want to lol. Don't get me wrong, my father isn't one of those stereotypical pakistani dads who are strict he is actually kinda cool and laid back and we have interesting debates about stuff like this and I feel like he just doesn't want me to live away because he's just overprotective which is understandable. Also maybe because he is afraid I'll get mixed up with the wrong crowd and lose my deen which I have to tell him that ain't happening because all through secondary school I haven't succumbed to peer pressure once. Anyway my question is are your parents fully on board with you living away for uni?
    Hey saffiyah i will he most likely to be moving out if i go to uni my mum is very supportive of this and wants me to.do well i think its ur dad being too overprotective tell him that he can see u on skype or facetime what u applying for?

    My parents are pretty iffy about me moving out for uni. My mum on one hand has the stereotypical asian parent view of moving out for uni so it's a straight up no no. My dad isn't cool with it either but his reasons are different to my mum's. He is a criminal defence solicitor, which has made him pretty paranoid about my safety and such seeing as he has to face all the horror stories first hand. Having said that, I've only applied to 1 uni in my city, another is close by (so could probably still live at home) and the last 3 are pretty far away. We'll see if I actually move out though

    I'm pure muslim paki, oh yeah my parents want me to stay in Birmingham so ima commute to Warwick uni each day. Its only 30 mins. I could never leave my parents. I owe them everything. I believe in Allah, Mohammed is his messenger.

    Yup, male though. Sister is allowed too though. My parents respect a degree at much better uni than a closer normal one. I know others that don't care how good the uni is, just how close.

    Who's deen and why might he get lost?
    Tbh , if a muslim goes to uni with sexual and other haram intentions. What's to stop them following through , regardless of whether they live at home away. It's not parents can keep you at home for your whole life.

    My parents and I had a deal. If I stay in London (where I originally live) I can stay out in halls. However, my brother goes to Cardiff and lives out. They don't mind.

    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
    Aw yeah uni defo isn't cheap
