Hi @Kanarii
What are your thoughts on home or accommodation?
have you made a pro and con list?

Hi Emily,

I have a mental list going so far in my head but have made the mistake of not writing it down yet.

The obvious answer is financial worries. I am from a low-income family and have anxiety surrounding being able to provide for myself. Living at home which is about an hour away from me, means I can still commute and with a travelcard, it's discounted.

However, living-in is much pricier as the loans will be going towards accomodation and then using what is left over to budget for any additional bills, food& beverage, possible travel and social events I may join in.

Living at home provides the disadvantage of having to rely on the Northern Railway which is...not the best of services and also missing out on social events more than students who live-in.

I'll be making a decision closer to time as my current finances also does not allow me to hastily pay for any accommodation :s-smilie:

Hi there,
Sounds like a great idea to mull these ideas over. Keep talking to other people about these thoughts and you will slowly but surely figure it out :smile:
Brill idea to get these pros and cons on paper!
