    I'm torn between 2 uni courses and i don't know what to do. I don't want to pick a course then later regretting it. So I wrote down the pros and cons for each:

    Early Childhood Studies vs Primary Education with QTS
    Uni near home (literally 15 mins drive away) vs uni in London
    Living at home vs living in London
    Home comforts vs opportunity to move, explore & meet different people.
    Saving money vs spending loads
    Career in early years vs career in primary teaching
    Progress onto management roles vs progress to various roles
    Okay-ish salary vs slightly higher salary

    That's just some of them. Anyway writing the list of pros and cons is making me even more confused. Can someone give me some info/advice please

    Are you eligible for enough finance to live in London ? How badly do you want to move out?

    Yeah I think I am. I really would like to move and gain independence but at the same time I know I will miss home and I don't want to end up worrying about finding places to live etc.

    It depends on you really but the homesickness goes away in time.
