For me I moved 3 hours by trains because I wanted to move out and generally have a fresh start in a place with actual shops and working public transport.

I moved away for undergraduate, though not hugely far (1.5 hour's drive away). For postgrad I've stayed in London and lived at home. Those days of living out feel like a lifetime ago :moon:

Only 2 hours away. Close enough to shoot home for family emergencies, far away enough to be a completely new start.

Im living at home because of money. I feel like there's hardly anyone who is staying at home it also means I had quite limited choices on where I could go.

If you are in London or another big city, I'm sure there is quite a lot of people staying at home. I know a friend who is going to Imperial and he's staying at home which is an almost 2 hour bus ride.

Did you plan to move so far or was it just the best choice uni wise?

I feel your pain,just three hours is annoying when the changes don't work out timing wise.

London must be so expensive to live out though so that's understandable.

I haven't started yet so I guess who knows but that's probably true😊 my journey will be either 1 hour or an hour and a half depending on what uni accepts me.

My mum has always left me to it, I hope they learn to let you go soon, it should be your choice.

I lived at home. In hindsight I probably should have but it's too late now
