So I applied to study psychology at Coventry, Nottingham Trent, Bath Spa, Chester and Portsmouth. After receiving offers for all, I ruled out:
-Coventry because I only really applied because it's near to where my boyfriend lives (Northampton) and the city doesn't really appeal to me.
-Bath Spa because it was a last option and was low down on the league table.
-Portsmouth because I don't like the modules.

So I'm stuck between Chester and NTU! Chester's modules are more appealing for the first and second year, I only prefer NTU's third year. I don't know which to put as my firm. I feel like if I wasn't with my boyfriend I'd choose Chester. It would be around £20 to travel from Nottingham to Northampton, and £35 from Chester to Northampton. However, the accommodation that I like at Chester is £1150 cheaper than the accommodation that I like at Nottingham Trent! I've already visited Nottingham and I liked it, I'm going to visit Chester on Saturday. So I suppose seeing both will make this decision a lot easier! But right now my mind is just all over the place, I'm so confused. Does anyone have any advice? Anyone in a long distance relationship due to uni themselves?

Hi I also have a hard time deciding between Unis. Chester and NTU being on my top list. I am going to study the conversion MSc in psychology so anything on the unis and the psych faculties would be helpful!

If you don't mind me speaking candidly I'd choose Chester... well actually I'd choose the university highest on the League table. I don't think that the duralibilty of your relationship should be a factor in your University decision only because it's you who has to study at said University for three
Years, and quite frankly, relationships become uncertain during university.

Psychology is such a demanding subject at A Level, so imagine how intense it will be as a degree? IIt's an admirable career path buy you must know that the workload will be incredibly strenuous on your social life and relationship. That is why I say choose university over preserving your relationship as not only will a more respected university help with your long term career prospects, but studying a course that you lowe will give you the added motivation you need to succeed.

I hope you do bit take offence to what I have said it is just my opinion. Besides, university is undoubted the most testing time in relationships, especially if you're going to separate ones; however, I your relationship is meant to be, then it shall endure.

I hope I've helped

I agree, relationships shouldn't be a factor when making university choices as university changes people, and you wouldn't want to be stuck at a uni you're not that into, should you both break up. If it's meant to be, you'll both put the effort in regardless of distance.
