    Hi I'm currently pretty much in a gap year, doing some resits and really thinking about what I want to do.
    I'm more of a home person and have decided that I would prefer to go to a local university, and keep my job at the weekend at the same time.
    My 1st choice is 45 mins away, my 2nd is 60 mins away and my 3rd is 30 mins away.
    Do you think that commuting is a good idea?
    I would love to hear from someone who commutes everyday themselves.
    Thanks for any feedback x

    I think that, as long as you are happy with both the benefits and the drawbacks, and think that commuting is better for you, it's a good idea.

    I commute about twenty to twenty-five minutes every day to uni, so if you have any specific questions, ask away.

    I commuted all last year to uni and am doing it again this year for my 3rd year. I live in London and my uni is in Kent so its a 2 and half to 3 hour commute each way and I passed last year with flying colours. Its definetely doable, just gotta be determined to make use of all your available time whilst still having a life!
