I also have couple of friends in my course who travel by train from wolverhampton.... I guess you will get used to it. Furthermore it depends on your timetable. how manytimes a week you have to come in.

    Yeah, my journey is identical

    I come in every day but Monday.

    However I plan to structure each day as a 9-5 so that I make the journey as efficient as possible. I feel just coming in for one lecture is no time effective.

    How hard did you find the first year?
