    Don't forget, of course, that not all of us have the option of living at home. My nearest medical school is over an hour away by car, and no way is that worth it, especially considering the extra hassle it would be to have a social life. None of my friends are at home either, so social life would totally suck.

    Far, far more important to go to a university that you enjoy and that is of a good standard (the only one I could possibly go to is Wolverhampton and not only does that not offer Medicine, but it's a dump) than the supposed "conveniences" of living at home.
    Good point. My nearest uni is TVU

    amazing how many people mis spell accommodation

    anywho, im moving away, far away actually

    imo, moving out for uni is one step in becoming independent, if i live at home with my rents until im like, 22, then the time i move out will be hard however, if i move out for uni now, at 18, i will be more prepared to become dependent on myself rather than my rents when i leave.

    TVU isn't that bad, if you ignore the 32% 2:1 rate, the high drop out rates etc. According to the Guardian its better than the a lot of traditional universities, according to the Times its ranked 100.

    According to unofficialguides.com a lot of people seem to have problems getting jobs though from there though. I think I can say you're doing the right thing by moving out

    I think TVU is one of them universities more geared up for mature local students who want a degree but can't afford to move out etc.

    Couple of people I know say the administration's awful - you can't get them to help with anything at all, whether that be getting your loan, sorting out a timetable or receiving exam results.

    Living at home. But it is my own home, not the parental home, so a little different!

    Yeah, my mate's mum did a part time degree course there and really enjoyed it. But that doesn't mean I want to go there! I don't fancy being in Slough for three years either
