    I've got a few questions so I'll be quick.
    Currently I'm studying in university and live there. Thing is, I hate my family so much and I don't ever want to go back. So I was wondering if it is possible to get a job and move into my own apartment straight after I leave uni and without my families help. But, that new apartment and job has to be in another city to where my families house is, so basically in another city from my current house.

    If you start saving some cash to move with and plan ahead and apply for graduate jobs early it could be possible

    So if I understood correctly, you're at university in the same town where your family live but you don't currently live with them? And you want to move to a different town after uni.

    Possible yes. Will take a lot of careful organisation and there might be some challenges. There are almost certainly going to be some costs involved in terms of fees involved with a new place and putting down deposit / paying rent upfront before you get any salary from a job. Depending on how early you get your job, any letting agency may want someone to act as guarantor still if you don't yet have a contract proving your salary.

    Might be worth looking into houseshares initially, would certainly be cheaper than a flat on your own, and you'd then have the time to settle, get established in your new job and save some money before potentially moving into a place by yourself if you can afford that.
