    Hi
    So I live in Plymouth currently, my boyfriend lives in Bristol which is 2 hours away. I think i've decided upon studying midwifery at uni, as psychology seems too hard and the entry requirements at bristol are out of my league. Thing is, we want to be closer together but it seems hardly anywhere does midwifery that is no more than an hour away from bristol! I'm considering Cardiff as its an hour away, and UWE does it but he goes there and i think that would be weird going to the same uni. can anyone suggest any universities that are no more than an hour away from Bristol? they don't have to do midwifery, i just want more options. thanks so much!

    You shouldn't be choosing a university based on its proximity to your boyfriend's town. You're limiting your choices and there will be some amazing universities that specialise in midwifery that you'll be missing out on because of your decision to be near your boyfriend. What if you break up and you're then stuck in a university near him, knowing you missed out on some better ones further away?

    Apply to universities across the country that appeal to you and suit your needs. If you two are serious and committed to each other then you'll be able to make it work.

    I completely agree - please don't choose your uni based on your boyfriend. I am currently at university and have seen this so many times, and either the person will resent the fact they made that choice, or the couple will break up and then they'll be at a uni they don't like for no reason.

    As said above, pick a uni you love and everything else will fit fine around that
