How depressing. Your twenties is all about, for many, travelling, working and living together with new people. Not back living with your folks again.
But Mintel Research anticipates 27% of all grads will head back to the home this year. And that number is likely to rise higher - possibly substantially so - as tuition fees of up to £9,000 become common.
Also a number of those Mintel questioned are still living at home in their mid thirties: out-of-reach house prices, relationship break-ups. Approaching middle age and still living at home is more common than you might think.
More choice later?A big part of the problem is the fixation from government that all - or nearly all - must go to university. Yet university is wrong for many. A vocational course is often far more suitable, practical and substantially cheaper, compared with university costs.
Get a job at the bottom; get experience and training. You might find you have an awful lot of choice - including housing - as a consequence, and possibly a great deal more than 'uni' mates.
Or better still, start your own business.
