    The only college with the course I want is too far away and the train fair is ridiculous... Any ideas on what to do? Can I move out at 16?

    You can move out at 16, but I would not recommend it, it is very difficult, hard, scary and just not a good idea unless you actually NEED to. Is there a similar course closer by? can you do distant learning? Maybe look at a season ticket? or get a railcard to cut the train fair?

    It would be very difficult as you won't get financial support to move out and you can't legally sign a contract at 16. Is there nothing else you wouldn't mind doing that is nearer, even if its not the course you really wanted? You may find that you can then progress onto your chosen course in higher education at 18 at which point you can get funding from student finance. You don't always need to study the same thing at 16 to continue it at 18.
