    What uni you thinking of applying to? I want to do similar and I've applied to UoB, hoping to get in the MSci course after my first year if I get all firsts
    I'm going to Newcastle
    I did love UoB though, but they were the only uni to reject me lol
    Good luck! I assume you're doing psychology?

    I have contemplated it many times, the houses are ridiculously cheap in places like Scotland. But then people are paying more for the area and life aren't they than the home.
    And thats the catch-22 for me too. I would love nothing more than to own my own home but I am a Londoner born and bred, all my friends, family and memories are here. I just can't see myself living anywhere else I'm afraid. Why the hell wasn't I born and raised in a cheaper area? So damn annoying!
    I guess for me moving away from where I grew up is something I'd always wanted to do so moving a couple of hours drive away wasn't too much on an adjustment for me. I don't know my rent's and living costs are quite cheap and i m not really paying for the area either so depends where it is I suppose.

    I would like to graduate next year with a decent 2:1/1st in my law degree, train with a Magic Circle law firm then work into an amalgamation of commercial law and cybersecurity perhaps as an advisor to promising startup.

    I hope my partner and I will be at the point where: i) we're close to getting engaged and ii) we're looking for a long-term home somewhere in commuting distance to London.

    In an ideal world, I will also take better care of my health and fitness. I'm not expecting to be a world-class athlete but I'd like to bulk up a little and get back into long distance running.

    we're intending on buying towards the end of 2018 (could be a few months earlier depending on how saving goes) assuming house prices round here don't go crazy

    Year 1: This time next year I'll be half way through my second year at Uni. I'll be considering what happens in my third year (placement or finish uni) and doing whatever is relevant.

    Year 2: Either in my placement or in my final year of uni. So probably working on a dissertation. I don't have ideas for a placement at the moment so I'll assume I'm not going to be doing a placement. If I did things would simply get pushed back a year

    Year 3: Will hopefully be in some sort of job since I'd have finished uni around 6/9 months ago. It'll also be 5 months until my 25th birthday, for which one of my goals was to have £20K saved in an account. Uni put a spanner in that but I should be back on track by then. The number is fairly arbitrary but it would be appropriate for something like a deposit or to pay for a new car, which I'll be looking into when I finish uni.

    This year also happens to coincide with finishing uni, which means I'd hope to be travelling to Japan at some point. Another use for that 20K. Also means I have around 3 years to get back to learning Japanese.

    Year 4 + 5: Haven't really thought this far ahead, at the moment I am focused on finishing uni. I don't really have any other long term goals and certainly nothing that I can say for sure I'd be doing in 4 to 5 years. Not to mention 3 years is plenty of time for things to change so I don't see the benefit of looking that far ahead.

    At this point I am more focused on what is happening now and in the immediate future (next 1/2 years)

    well the main reason i can afford my half of a deposit is through relatives dying, so in that sense not so lucky but if that hadn't happened i'd have been much harder on myself with saving and would be having a smaller wedding. I guess you just have to decide if living in london means so much to you that you feel happy in renting for life.

    I'm moving to London in september for my postgrad, after that hopefully find a job (Anything at first just to keep me alive.) Stay in London whilst I find the job i actually want to do. My boyfriend graduates in 2018 so he's moving down with me, then he's doing a postgrad, so by the time he finishes we'll hopefully be married with children with good jobs
