    That's the thing. At the moment, I'm trying to balance the pros and cons. I think I think too much. I'm 23 heading into university again for my third year. I'm unemployed. Haven't got any money in my account. Living with parents and family. Waiting for student finance money to come in. After my third year, I'm planning to get some sort of work placement and then possibly masters. Looking for paid jobs.

    I need advice.

    Should I take the plunge and move out with the student finances in order come September and then worry about finding a part time job when i get there? Or be content with family life and stick it out, using the finances to pay for my travel to uni? (btw. i live out in the countryside, while my uni's in central london.) Living at home can get downright annoying specially since I'm the oldest sibling- I don't want to be defined by that, but sometimes I feel like that's the only role I have. No friends nearby. Its pretty much dead. And everything costs these days.

    Thanks.

    19, went to uni, never came back.

    Although I still have a room in my parents home when I visit and it contains some of my non-essential stuff.

    I left for uni aged 19, though for the first two years I went back over the summer and other uni breaks, so I'm not sure that counts.

    At 21, I moved in with my boyfriend in a flat near my uni. I no longer go back for holidays, and won't be going back over the summer. So I'd say 21.
    Even though I've still not changed the address on my driving licence..

    19, and still at home.
    I work full time though (and didn't go to Uni) I'm at home to save as much money as possible for when I do move out.

    Hi,

    If I were you, I'll stay at home & find a part time job if u can & save up for when you move out. It's your final year & you don't wanna struggle with finances, just focus on passing your modules! I agree, so expensive most of student finance would just go towards your rent.

    Cheers. I guess I'll just bide my time until then with the student room. Its a place where I can socialise I guess. (crying inside)
