    I'm doing an art foundation course next year in London which is about an hour and 20min train journey away. My parents are willing to let me do whatever so now I'm left to decide whether to commute as I only have to attend school 3 days a week, or just move to a uni hall.

    If I was to move out I will meet more people and just experience the city as well as an adult life. If I stay, instead my parents are willing to buy me my first car and I will just have a comfortable year being provided with everything. Financially it will be similar because to pay for the car & the insurance, the cost per year would be similar to my uni accomodation.

    I don't know what to do. Could an extra year of London be worth giving up a year of settled life at home?
