Hey, so the uni I want to go too is an hours train ride away. I'm unsure what to do in regards to accommodation.

-Stay at home, carry on with work till second year
-Move for first year, work in summer (tesco or elsewhere)
-Move for first year, come home for weekend work
-take lifestyle break in August till November, then come home for work


¬I will have to quit sometime in second year because of term abroad and work placement in third year

Move to uni and find a summer job there or most courses end April/May anyway so you could always go back home after that and work at home during summer.

Hey jdsgirlfriend28!

When I moved to uni I quit my previous job after working all summer to save up money for uni.
I was then able to return to the job over Christmas and Easter but I found a different job for the summer, would this be something you are able to do?
I also found work through the uni which is a great idea as it fits around your studies and gives you a bit of extra money if you need it, so I'd recommend trying to get a job through the uni.

During second year I found a job near where I live at uni, but I have still secured another summer job so I can save for the next academic year.

I'd suggest moving to uni, and getting a summer job, and if you can find part-time work to fit around your studies whilst at uni then take this too!

I hope this helps you!
