Hi I am Reji!

I am a year 13 student debating on which university I should go to Please help.

The course I am going to take is business management. And my passion is to become an entrepreneur in the fashion industry. In Surrey they offer business management (Entrepreneurship) and in Kingston it’s business management with the third year to specialise in enterprises. The both offered me a place within conditions BBB. Surrey is higher ranked then Kingston for my course btw

If I go to Surrey then I can move away from home and be independent and I can be free

If I go to Kingston then I would have to stay at home and wouldn’t have to worry about maintenance.

The thing is I have strict Asian family and I am not sure how I’d convince them in to letting me move out but at the same time I am very attached to my dad and sis and can’t live a day without seeing them (they’re very sweet) . I spoke to My sis and she said moving out and living on my own would be the best choice for me as I would be able to do the things that I ve always wanted to do . But in the other hand my dad really wants me to stay home and he’s not really willing to let me move out. Please help.

As long as my dad approves of me moving out I can . But how do I convince him ( he’s very understanding but I am scared to hurt his feelings) and I don’t really care about the rest of my family decisions.

So please help out

Thank you

Hey there!

It's great to hear that you are considering Surrey as an option for University!

It can be really hard for parents when it comes to their child going to University. I would suggest sitting down and talking to your dad about your options. You could explain both options to him, come up with pros and cons of each. For example a pro of moving out is being more independent and learning valuable life skills. You could also talk to him about each university, maybe you could go through each university with him, look at the modules together, facilities etc. He may really like that you are including him in so he can see what the university is like. Have you been to any open days? It would be a good idea to take your dad and sister with you so you can all view the universities together. I think communication is key, so as long as you are communicating and being open with your dad, hopefully he will be ok with you moving out

I hope this helps, if you have any questions Surrey or university life in general please let me know as I am here to help!
