    Hi, I am planning to study in London, I got it all figured out almost but there is one thing that I'm not sure about.
    I live in Croatia (that is 2 hours with plane from London).
    The question is , how often is it possible to go home to see friends and family ?

    I'm at uni in London and although I'm a home student a good percentage of people I know aren't

    There is no general answer. Depends on your circumstances. I have a friend who went back to Germany every other weekend for the first term, then I have friends who only go back in holidays, and then I know people who don't go back during holidays and will only go back at summer

    Money is obviously a huge factor, and time and course requirements (e.g do you need to be at uni for coursework or group work or labs during the weekends), but for social reasons and to build friendships I'd say try to not go home that often...
