    I have a question- do you find it hard that you're living in London and studying here at the same time? Do you feel independent? Is it annoying at times, when family wants you to be around but you want to enjoy uni life?

    I'm thinking of applying to KCL for International Relations- it's my only uni in London.
    I'll miss London too much, but I also want to have the freedom, which is more accessible imo if you live out.

    Wherever you are, make it count. Don't be there just to get a degree. You'll find it hard to get by after you graduate

    Employers want people who stand out. Who show that they devote every minute to making a successful career and don't just turn up out of obligation. You can earn that degree if you want, but your uni experience, including whoever you meet, matters a lot more to employers.
