    Personally, I wouldn't do that if I were you.....move closer or stay in res. I am currently in a similar situation and would not recommend that! That's 4 hours a day that can be spent in revising or doing something else!!!!!! Any how, that's my opinion!

    I'm not at Kingston and it might depend on the uni but in first year I was in 5 days a week. A couple of them were 9-5 as well although some days I was only in for an hour or two. Really annoying when you commute. I've had less contact hours in second and third year but I'd still say I'm very rarely in less than 4 days a week. Sorry. It is tempting not to go in on those days when you only have one lecture but you have to be careful because you end up missing a lot without realising.

    Where are you studying? Ive heard that Pharmacy at Keele uni is 5 days a week, but dont know what about kingston.
    I was thinking about transfering somewhere closer after 1 year (or after first semester if thats possible), but i dont know if it would mean that I have to pay more (the tuition fees are going up in 2012/2013).

    I'm at Strathclyde. I think most, if not all, unis will want you in quite a lot. There's a lot to learn and you'll have labs, workshops etc. Transferring sounds like a better option than spending 4 hours a day travelling but I don't know how it would work especially with the fees. The best thing to do is probably ring the admissions department of the uni you're looking to transfer to.

    I'm not at Kingston but since the course is fairly standardized I imagine it will be quite similar everywhere. I'm at UEA and I'm never in less than 4 days a week, the timetable varies through the year but I would hazard a guess and say I have 5 days a week about 70% of the time.
