I felt it was much easier for me to stay and study in Gibraltar, especially as my family is here. A few years ago, I did go to university in the UK, but I became very homesick and did not enjoy my experience there. This time, I’m really enjoying my university experience – when I finish my lessons, I can go off to the beach with my family! My partner is here, and so are my younger siblings, and by staying in Gibraltar I often get to see them. Additionally, everything is close by which is so much more convenient than when you have to catch trains and travel long distances like you do in the UK.
