If you've got somewhere to stay, no I don't think it's too far.

I'm sure your parents will miss you, but otherwise it's a great opportunity to gain some independence and see other parts of the country.

You're only young once.

It depends how often you would like to see them/go back home. I live 1.5h from my parents now and regularly pop in to see them. If I live further that would be a lot less regular but I would still have managed to adapt to the new uni life but in a different way. Bear in mind you may get homesick when u know u can’t easily see them often. Edinburgh’s a great uni and distance shouldn’t put you off. If your mental well-being will get worse cause you can’t see them they maybe go somewhere closer but it’s your choice in the end

Personally I am moving about 2 and a half hours away, if you’re going to visit your family 3 times a year then it’s fine but if you want to pop in to see your family from time to time it’ll take a long time and be very expensive to travel. Wouldn’t studying at edinburgh mean you have to complete an additional year at uni too?

I'm from Cardiff and go to Glasgow , I fly, yes the initial drive is 8 hours but flying you are only 3 hours away (including getting to the Scottish airport, flying then getting home to Cardiff from Bristol Airport) plus its far cheaper. Fly to Bristol that is then come back over to Cardiff, you don't even need to pay the toll anymore.
