    I don't even want to live away for uni but because my father doesn't want me to it kind of makes me want to lol. Don't get me wrong, my father isn't one of those stereotypical pakistani dads who are strict he is actually kinda cool and laid back and we have interesting debates about stuff like this and I feel like he just doesn't want me to live away because he's just overprotective which is understandable. Also maybe because he is afraid I'll get mixed up with the wrong crowd and lose my deen which I have to tell him that ain't happening because all through secondary school I haven't succumbed to peer pressure once. Anyway my question is are your parents fully on board with you living away for uni?

    No not really but it's not up to them. Even if I wanted to live away from home and they didn't agree, It wouldn't stop me from living away. They allow me to make my own decisions and they know it's not up to them.

    Same as my parents. Although I've applied to uni's which are around 250 miles away so I can't exactly commute

    My parents know I applied to two out of London unis and they seem okay with it. But I think they want me to stay in London because they think it's easier, but if I told them I would go I don't think they'd have a problem with it.

    Tbh I'm not sure what my parents' reasoning is; I think my dad is also kinda over-protective.
