    I've firmly accepted my place at Nottingham for 2013 and I can't wait to go. However it was only after I had done so that my boyfriend announced HE wants to go to Nottingham as well, and both of our parents have explicitly said this is something they do not want to happen... He has implied a break up prior to uni but I'm just not sure, as I know he is a lot more inclined towards the freedom of single life than I am... Any hints/tips/advice?!? I'm pretty stuck so anything is welcome!

    I'm not sure, he's been to a visit day recently and loved it and we also went to look at it together last year. It's just annoying me because his course (Politics) strikes me as being pretty much the same in all his unis, whereas the Nottingham course was very different from the others I applied to and much much more suited to me!

    If I were you I'd speak to him about this. Sit down and tell him exactly how you feel about this and get him to tell you exactly his reasons for choosing that university and what he's expecting to happen when you go to uni. It'll be a weight off your mind if you find out from him directly what's going on! You'll only drive yourself insane not knowing!

    I don't see the issue. He's going to Nottingham, so are you. THAT isn't an issue and neither of you should have to change this for the other!
    As for the relationship though, you need to talk about that.

    You should both pick whichever uni you like best and **** what anyone else thinks or says.

    Sounds like a good idea! At the end of the day if we do both end up going there but decide to split up beforehand/while we're there anyway, there will be so many other students there that we are probably unlikely to come into contact very often anyway! Although I agree we definitely need to talk about our options together in more depth.
