    So... without making this too long, basically I'm pretty unhappy at my current university because: I don't get on that well with my flatmates, I hate my accommodation, I miss my family a lot, I don't like the city and although I love the subject Im studying (geography) the course here isn't what I thought it'd be.
    Now I'm torn. Do I just stick it out for the other 2 years or should I transfer to Exeter University and move back home. I'd feel like a bit of a failure moving home and Id have to commute there but I know that id be happier. Plus I'd still be at a Russell group university in a city that I know I love.

    Transfer to Exeter university. You'll regret it if u don't. Trust me, I'm in my last year of a levels and i regret not transferring somewhere else when I had the chanse. From what you've said i don't see any reason why you should stay at your current university especially if your unhappy there. Your not a failure if you move back home and commute to Exeter university instead. It sounds like you'd be happier transferring. If I was you i would transfer.

    I did a Masters recently, at a University i very quickly discovered I hated (Bath). I had to rush to find last minute accomodation, so of course it was terrible. As a result i didnt get to choose my flatmates-almost all of whom were also terrible. And I hated the city.

    However for me, my Masters was only a year. So i figured no point backing out now, just put up with it and get your degree. Thats the only way i'd recommend staying on it. However if you are in first year, don't suffer like this. My advice would be look into transferring.
