Live at uni or commute???? Watch
Please could somebody give me some advice on what to do!
I live in Hereford and I'm going to Worcester Uni in September, I'm unsure on whether to live in Worcester or commute daily.
The only things holding me back from living in Worcester is the loans I'd take out for living expenses, if I'm on placement in Hereford is silly to commute from Worcester everyday and I know that any free time I have I will be back in Hereford anyway!
Has anybody been through this and can give me some pointers about either commuting or living in Worcester please, thanks :-)
I knew plenty of people who commuted to and from Worcester when I studied at HCA. It's only a short commute, and if you're hoping to spend all your free time in Hereford anyway then it sounds like a better option to do that.
Worcester's one I'll possibly accept, and I live in Hereford currently too. I'd be looking at university accommodation if I end up there. I have virtually no independence at the moment outside my full-time job, (why I'm not majorly concerned about the expenses I guess) and I'm in very early 20s. I wouldn't just move out for the sake of it and I have no other reason to, so for me the accommodation route is an amazing opportunity.
If you've already got independence then you don't have as much to miss out on.
Finance matters too. It'll be a lot cheaper to commute. All depends on your circumstances I guess.
A lot of students at the uni commute from places such as Cheltenham, Hereford & Outer Birmingham.
I think to get the full student experience you need to move to Worcester - the rents aren't that bad for houses. We're talking about £400 a month. You're looking at £150+/- to commute a month assuming you've not got a railcard and will be in 4 days a week.
There's a massive thread here about living at home vs halls.
I'm thinking about commuting from Derbyshire. I would love to move to Worcester but I find the idea of halls quite stressful as I'm 27 not 18! But i can imagine commuting being very tiresome too, perhaps id miss out on fully immersing myself into the experience?
Edit: after having looked where in Derbyshire draycott is, I can understand your confusion. I live in the Peak District so have sheffield oneside and Manchester the other I'm evidently more North than you so sorry if I confused you x
