    then there are other considerations you can't tell until you are actually at uni but you can get a good idea.

    How long is your journey.

    Will you have time to actually study (you can't do good work on the train no matter what you think)

    Are the trains reliable can you actually gt to uni on time .

    How is your time table (a good day for a home student is not the same as a good day for a student living out)

    and consider your social life.

    you have though you said it £3000 vs £5000 so a £2000 saving although it's all moot if you fail (but you most likely won't) all the outhe things i listed are quite important.

    Then there's the qualitative factors such as more independence, ease of access to uni, more friends to be made etc... I have a friend who travels from Coventry to Nottingham in her foundation year on her art course, partly to see if she should go into halls in his first proper year, and the answer from her is a solid yes.

    Why was it a yes? And how did she travel?
    No offence but as a Muslim I am aware that my roommate will go partying and bring guys in

    If you live out you get more loan which should cover it a part time job somewhere like a shop could also help you don't have to start paying back the loan until your earning £21,000 a year your student bank account will also have about £2000 overdraft limit which is interest free.

    Lol like everyone else going to uni... Just because youre a muslim doesnt mean you cant stay in uni. You can get private 1 bedroom or studios that have kitchen bathroom bedroom etc all to yourself, if you want privacy. You get issued a mainteance loan of upto £8200 based off how much your parents earn
