University applications are open this month and I Already know I can't afford to go to my dream school next year. I can however do a 1 year course near home in order to save up. On the other hand my families financial situation isn't the best and if I go it puts my single parent in a really hard position. I've looked into part time jobs to help contribute but circumstances just won't allow this and school. I can get an apprentice ship in my choosen topic but I'm worried I'll resent my family for not getting a degree. I know if I told my parent they'd demand I go but I'm not sure I could live with the guilt of not helping. I just want to help my family but both options seem to leave someone worse off. Obviously my family can't know the real reason I might not go to uni so I have no one to talk to about this decision. If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated!
