I am at Level B1 right now in Spanish, my goal is to become proficient/fluent in the next 5 years. I have a hit a point where I feel like I cannot learn any more until I'm in a Spanish speaking country and surrounded by it. My original plan was to go to Spain for each summer for the next few years until I got to the C2 level but then I thought it would be a bit of a waste of time and money to come back to the UK for 9 months for Uni and then not be able to speak Spanish.

So do you think I just should wait until I've graduated Uni and then put all my effort in learning it or do it in between academic years? I definitely want to be proficient as I want to live in a Spanish speaking country, I'm just impatient because I love the language and want to learn it asap.

How about maintaining/aiming to improve slightly for the now, and leave putting full effort in till after uni? There are plenty of uni societies/non-uni meet-ups of Spanish-speakers where you can go and practise your Spanish (often free of charge), or there are a lot of unis and colleges which offer cheap evening classes, so you could probably quite easily maintain your Spanish level and gain the odd bit of vocab/grammar without putting in too much money or effort. When you leave off speaking a language altogether it takes a while to get it back, plus you clearly enjoy the experience, so I'd say keep it up but leave off putting in full effort till you're ready.
