    Should i move out or stay at home when i go to university ? my parents obviously say stay at home (bless em ) but i am unsure.

    it seems that a lot of people are moving out going to University, and i feel that in order to 'gain the full experience' i should move out.

    theres also the problem of whether i should stay in london or go out of london - if i stay in london i will always have my parents house as back-up if i dont like staying elsewhere, whereas i wouldnt if i moved out and would be stuck with smelly students (which i do NOT plan to be)

    so have any of you got any advice ? (besides do what you think best suits you, i already heard that one)

    your experiences would also be appreciated

    There is a lot more freedom when you've moved out,lot of skill's you have to learn,cooking,cleaning,money management.
    I think you should make the break!!!

    I moved out when I went to uni, a fairly long way from home. Lots of my friends went to Cardiff - which isn't that far from where we live.

    They had a great time, I had a great time.

    The one thing you shouldn't do is stay at home. There were a few on my course who studied from their parents house and they just didn't seem to 'fit in'. Probably because they weren't in the middle of things on the weekend due to them being at their parents' house.

    When you move out, you're in the same boat as almost all of the other folk on your course, everyone worries about missing friends and family, looking after yourself (cooking, cleaning etc.) and moving in with strangers but since it's the same for everyone - it doesn't seem that bad. You should definitely move out whether you decide to study in London or go further afield.

    It seems to me that only a certain 'type' of person will stay at home

    Oh yeah, casual sex is soooo much easier when you're not living in your parents' house.
