Going to uni close to homeWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
That's a combination with fewer choices than I expected to see when I just looked it up.
I was going to suggest one of the constituent colleges of the University of London as I thought that this would give you the chance to be in London and linked in to so much that is Spanish, but I couldn't see a course which offered those two subjects in London.
Exeter is a good University and also a nice place.
Where else is on your list?
I was in a similar position to you, my university wasn’t extremely far from my home town. Personally I didn’t find it too bad because at my university I felt as if I was in my own bubble so even though it wasn’t ages from home it still felt like a different world especially due to the campus. That being said there are also benefits of going to a uni not far away- I’ve found it’s easier and cheaper to commute home and see friends/ family than my friends whose home town was hours away from their unis.
So from my experience it hasn’t been too bad moving to a uni not far away !
Good look with your decision

Maybe 40 mins away is a good distance? You don't want to be too far away, you'll have the opportunity to bounce between home an uni which is useful as an undergrad.
