Hi there,

Just wondering if anybody is going to or has done a daily commute from poole or nearby to Winchester uni?? How long? How much did it cost on train?

It is possible that I could do the commute in a car - is this a shorter Journey time than the train?
Thanks!

I haven't done the commute. I wouldn't want to do the commute(too long) but it is your choice.
Train -
The journey is 1hr 30mins (approx), not including the walk/ bus to the university.
It is £380 for a 1 month season ticket or £20 per return journey (off peak).

It is about 1 hr in the car. Then you must factor in fuel, tax, insurance ect.

I am curious whether you applied to Bournemouth University?

Hi thanks for the reply.
380 for a month.... I think that's made my decision for me!

No I have not applied anywhere yet. I need to make the decision between Bournemouth/Southampton/Winchester(not urgently). I was considering winchester because it would allow me to cut a year off my degree, but I would probably just end up spending the 9 grand I saved on travel anyway!

Do you happen to know about the commute to southampton? It is likely I will choose bournemouth though.
Also, I suppose the uni fee will not need to be paid upfront whereas travel will.

Well 135 isn't too bad compared to what we discussed above! Very interested in the psychology course (BSc). I hear a lot about how good bmouth is for media but not a lot about it's other subjects. Hopefully it lives up to expectations! Lovely location.
