    I really can't decide. I currently have zero friends so I was thinking if I moved away would I have a higher chance of making friends? But is it a nightmare living with other people? Then on the other hand I was thinking if I stayed at home I would be able to buy a car etc.

    Is the 'uni life' worth it? I know i'm going to have to move out one day, it doesn't bother me I just can't decide if I should for uni or not.

    What are your thoughts?

    Well when I went to my uni interview they said because the nhs pay the tuition fees I won't get a full student loan so I'm not sure I'd even be able to afford rent

    I'd move to uni halls, just because it's kinda a once-in-a-lifetime experience imo, but that might be just me

    If you're doing an nhs funded course you should get money from nhs bursary (use the calculator here https://apps.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/SGUBursary/) and then if you moved out a 2.3k maintenance loan from sfe.
