So basically I’m in this really awkward situation. I’ve always wanted to travel a move out when I go to uni just for the independence and the experience . I’ve applied to the uni by me because it’s the top in the course I want to do and is a Russell group . My second and third choices aren’t Russell group unis and aren’t the top for my course (one of the course has only been on for one year) however they are in new locations and I’d be able to live a new life there .
I’ve had offers from all three , however the Russell group uni by me has offered me the best offer that they will lower my grade boundaries and guarantee me accommodation if I put it as my first. It’s an amazing uni and has a fab reputation however I just don’t want to live so close to home. Whereas the other two unis aren’t the top and have slightly higher boundaries however I’ll have the full “uni experience”
Just wondering what anyone would do or if you go to uni or have been in this situation what would you do?
Thank you😊

If the university allows it you can go to your first choice and still move out if its close, remember not to purely base your decision on ranking though.

You can still go to the uni accommodation.

Or just move out to a studio/flat, tell your parents you want to be more independent and have the full 'uni experience'. But you should reassure them you will not go partying every night and drinking.

Pretty much all universities guarantee accommodation for freshers if you firm them.

Can you be more specific: which course is this? And which 3 universities?

Don't feel apprehnesive about being so close to home. When I was choosing universities I couldn't decide between putting one that was 5 hours from home as my firm or the one that was 30 minutes away. Like you, I wanted to move away and start over. I ended up going to the one that was 30 minutes away as I much preferred the course but I've still had the chance to have the whole uni experience. Always go for the course you think would be best.

Pick the course (there will be some differences between them) and the university you most prefer. Have you visited them all?

There's no rush to decide - you have until May
