    The freedom and independence.

    And studying something I love, without the 'means to an end' approach I took with GCSEs and A Levels.

    Yes, it's fantastic.
    But why care at your age?

    Having a decent internet connection I suppose.

    Apart from that there isn't much about it that's good. (Personally speaking of course).

    Like a lot of other people, being able to study a subject I love. I also like that you don't get looked down on for actually studying like you do at school.

    The freedom, having nobody question what you do is good, finding out more about yourself too I suppose.
    Also the nights out, going to the pub is all good.
    Sorry I didn't mention my subject - it's allright I suppose I will like it more when I get more into it.

    I enjoy the English side of my degree more than psychology but it's still interesting... but difficult and confusing at the same time!
