Go for it! You will find university to be a great experience!
I'm in my final year of college and now as a part of my course I'm looking at universities. I've applied for two open evenings but I'm scared ****less for actually starting uni and its under a year away! I have a boyfriend of over 2 years and he is very supportive and wants me to go uni but I'm scared of moving so far away from him and loosing distance. I'm also scared of being on my own and having no money and genuinely worried that I'm too thick to even attend uni. I've wanted to go for 3 years now but as the time is near I'm now worried and completely lost in what to do. any advice?
Everyone has anxiety about going to uni, its normal. If you have any more questions let me know.
But its one of the best experience of your life and teaches you not just stuff related to your course, but how to be independent etc. its a bit like being an adult but with safety wheels on for 3 years. I dont imagine the anxiety will go away until you actually arrive at uni, but perhaps try and distract yourself thinking of all the exciting opportunities uni brings.
