Hi everyone,
I am a second year biology student and I am really considering doing a year abroad in Europe next year (I'm thinking Sweden - with my best friend). I'm just having a bit of a panic that I'm not going to be able to cope. I never moved out to uni (1.5hr commute every day), so I've never experienced not living at home / living with a new group of people / living in a different city. I absolutely love the sound of studying abroad and I think it could really improve my confidence, but I'm just scared I don't have enough life experience to cope with it.

Are there any other uni commuters that took a year abroad? I'd love some reassurance that everything is going to be okay.

Perhaps. It's very person-specific. It will be strange even for those who moved out.

Try looking up blogs. And get in contact with people from your university who've done it.
