    Hey, so I've got a problem....I'm a student livening in London with my family and I got to a uni that's an hour and a half away from me so moving out for that uni wouldn't be a wise decision. I've never wanted to go to that uni but as my ucas was messed up I had no choice but to go there however I gave it a chance but I still don like that uni and I want to transfer into another university but for that I'll have to move out and I really want to love out but my family are strictly against it. I've made my mind up and I want to go but how do I convince them? I'm from an Asian family and none of my family have moved out for uni....i really want to move out please help me convince them

    You're going to have to come at this from the uni perspective, not the moving out perspective.

    Explain very clearly what you dislike about your current uni, tell them you're unhappy there and don't feel you can reach your full potential if you stay.

    Then state the benefits for you if you change to the other uni, explain that it's better than your current uni for x y z reasons. Give evidence if you can, eg league tables, student satisfaction levels from surveys, percentage of graduates in employment within six months of graduating etc. Really make a case for it.

    Don't mention anything about moving out to attend the other uni. Let them raise it, because I'm sure they will if what you say above is accurate. Then explain that you'll be able to take care of yourself, will be in touch often, and reiterate the reasons for wanting to go to that uni. Don't let the words "I really want to move out" pass your lips, because that's not how you'll win this one.

    All the best!

    My main concern is that I don't want to graduate from my current uni. I thought I'll tell my mum and sister that I'm reapplying to transfer unis which they weren't happy about earlier this year and then when I get a confirmed offer i can discuss my discussion fitter with them and they will know that the uni is far so I will moving out. I have to transfer unis otherwise I'll regret it for the rest of my life
