Are you planning to study outside the UK when you go to university to avoid high fees in the UK?
Or did you do your first year abroad?
I'd love to hear from you for a piece I'm working on about international study, why you made that decision etc

Not sure if this counts, but I'm doing a distance learning degree at a European university (no fees ).

I am thinking of applying to a trilingual university in South Tyrol, in the Italian Alps. The degree would be Industrial and Mechanical Engineering, and it would be taught ⅓ English, ⅓ German and ⅓ Italian. I have done A-Level German and you only need to know two languages initially, you learn the third while you are there - think of it as a science degree with a minor in italian and german.
The tuition is about €1400 per year, but you can get a grant of up to €5800 a year, plus a refund on the tuition depending on parents' income. Also the cost of living is far less than the UK, however I would have additional costs of travelling home regularly.
Nothing is certain at the moment, but the idea of studying somewhere where there'd be a steady supply of pizza and the opportunity to casually go skiing between lectures does appeal to me!
Hope that helps!
