    Hi, I'm currently working at Primark and plan to transfer to a store in my university of choice's (TBC) town.

    I've just thought however, that if I do, I probably won't be able to go home at the end of my first year.

    All of my choices are 50+ miles from home, so it would be unreasonable (not to mention expensive!) to commute every day during summer just to get to work.

    I have noticed however, that university accommodation has the option for 45 or 51 week lease (depending on universities), so would it be reasonable for me to take the 51 week lease?

    Or I might see if I can temporary transfer my contract to my hometown for the summer?

    Most students moving out of halls into a shared house will do this at the start of the summer. It’s often possible to rent a room over the summer for much less than you would pay in halls. I wouldn’t commit now to an expensive 51 week contract unless you plan to live in halls for your second year too.

    As a current college student i solemly believe that college should be tuition free. When you see a middle class person complain about the tuition costs you know there is a problem. With college costs not only come to tuition but also the materials needed for each class . College books are ridiculously expensive we must also cover other costs our selves. In this country with rising college tuition costs there is also a message that the best of education goes to those who can afford it. I believe that education is a right not a privaledge I believe that everyone should have equal access to education regardless of income. I just feel like there is no longer a middle class population and the gap between the top 1% wealthy and the rest of the lower class population is getting bigger and bigger.

    Often large chains have a facility to allow students to transfer during the holidays, so I would ask your employers if that would be ok.
