I am planning to move to Northern Ireland from England. I do not want to go to uni and currently, I am 18. My parents live in England along with my grandparents so I have nobody out there to stay with. I know I will need to get a job out there but I have no idea where to stay. Has anyone ever moved out there for uni or in general your advice would be helpful

Hello. Why do you want to move to the North of Ireland? You will need a deposit of a good few hundred to put down on a property to rent.I moved here in 1999 with my 2 year old son. I would have found it almost impossible to move here had his father not helped to find us somewhere to live at this end first.

Moving to Northern Ireland will be a big change. Whilst it is similar in way of life, please be aware that you won’t have anywhere near the level of amenities or services that you would get in a typical English community.

Northern Irish people are very friendly but it is a community orientated place where people stick to their own people’s.

I hope you have a good time when you move here.

People don’t stick to their own communities like they used to. You make Northern Ireland sound like Hicksville.

Why Northern Ireland specifically? It’s going to be difficult to move to a new place without a job or any support.

I went to university in Southern England, it’s nothing like Northern Ireland culturally. I am only telling this person to be prepared for that.

People will be nosy, they will ask you questions about where you are from, why you moved here etc.

Country areas tend to be more like that. Northern Ireland definitely isn’t the most progressive or exciting place though and I’m not sure why anyone would want to move there.

People ALWAYS ask me how I ended up here. They have done so since I moved here in 1999 and if people don't know me, they still ask.

Why Northern Ireland? I moved to Scotland for university and 5 years later I've never looked back. It'll be hard. Northern Ireland is a funny place. We talk fast and we're nosey *******s.

Yes I find most English people come here because of family/partner/army. Very rarely do they move here off their own gumption.

Well my surname is O'Brien !! My grandparents were from Co. Offaly, and I had wanted to move to Ireland for years. Just so happened that I met a Mayo man who was living up North, and I ended up moving in with him pretty quickly. Things didn't work out ( he was an alcoholic and violent towards me). But I got pregnant after only a few months ( which I was delighted about). Left him and moved back in with my mum in Manchester, for the sake of my unborn. Ended up moving back here as i missed the place, when my son was two, in 1999. Been here ever since.
