I plan to go to uni after S6 I’m currently in S5. I would go after S5 but I’ll be 16 a bit young. I don’t know what to do with S6 I essentially have a free year as my school and none around other advanced engineering. I want to go into engineering. So either a job or just crash sone higher do other advanced or whatever. Idk what’s best. But my main problem is sbout university and where to live. My mum wants me to live at home. I personally don’t I don’t like the environment. However she won’t fund me leaving as she doesn’t want me to. If I stay I get there by train it’s about 1 hour maybe longer or shorter depending on the train. The cost overall does end up maybe £2000 less than living there and that doesn’t include the food I’d need to buy at uni. And sure I can get a part time job at uni but it won’t help that much. I didn’t want to get in any debt taking out a student loan. And I know it’s the best interest you ever get but I know people still paying it off I don’t want that hanging over my head if it’s not necessary. Even if you live but not within the university it’s still pricey. Do I just commute and get over it? But given the long commute and train times it means the latest I can do things there is around 11pm. Which isn’t bad and if I make friends I suppose sone days I can stay over but I won’t have any clothes. Plus my family environment I don’t enjoy I don’t want to be here for tjat long with the added stress of uni work. Thoughts?
