Is getting my own flat likely to hinder future university plans? Watch

    Part of me thinks I'll end up delaying and delaying, until I have at least a bit of money saved.

    If I get a flat (and move out of my parents' place) I'll probably end up spending most of my savings, as well as working full time to pay for the rent and bills.

    If I did, it would be for a year at most, after which I hope to go to university (I'm starting my gap year right now) and I'm thinking that things might become inconvenient when it comes to moving out and then finding another flat in the summer (a b&b over Christmas?)...

    Is anyone else in a position like this - living on your own I mean.


    (I hope it's okay to put this thread in this forum, none of the others seemed right)

    My advice will be to get a job before you move out of your parent's home.
