I'm from Cornwall and have applied to Bristol UWE, Plymouth Uni, Plymouth Art College and Falmouth Uni. I will living in accommodation away from home, in whichever of these options that I pick.

I applied for unis last year and attended uni for a short time in Southampton Solent in last year, but left as I wasn't ready for uni and also didn't like the city. Because of this I applied to the closer to home options that I turned my nose up at last year.

My dream when I was younger was to go to uni in London or abroad, so I don't want to not enjoy my time at uni if I pick close to home or regret the decision after I graduate.
I'm afraid I'll regret not pushing myself to go to a further away uni in London, Northern England or further afield, can anyone give me any advice???

I'm from Cornwall and have applied to Bristol UWE, Plymouth Uni, Plymouth Art College and Falmouth Uni.

I applied and attended uni for a short time in Southampton Solent in September last year, but left as I wasn't ready for uni and also didn't like the course or location. Because of this I applied to the closer to home options that I turned my nose up at last year.

However I am afraid that I will regret not pushing myself to go to a further away uni in London/Northern England, can anyone that is in 2nd/3rd year or any graduates give me any advice???
You shouldn't have to push yourself to move away, if it's what you wanted then you'd just do it. There's nothing wrong with going to a university near home, or even living at home whilst you study. Not everyone can or wants to move hundreds of miles away. You have your whole life to live in London/Northern England, there's no rush.
