    if you do this regularly you will end up with so much wasted time as it all accumulates... not worth it if you ask me
    maybe look for student accommodation closer to where you study?? it will benefit you in the long run

    Yeah I know what you mean but it is only for 2 days a week, so moving somewhere for just a 2 day week and paying for accommodation is too expensive. If the course was longer I'd move but a 2 day long commute might just be something I have to do

    2 days a week isn't too bad to be honest. But I'm potentially seeing that there might be some weeks where you might need to stay overnight. Especially if there are presentations the next day or group projects to work on.

    Coolsbreeze makes a good point about groupwork. But yes, I think it's very doable. I had a 3 hour round commute to uni as a lot of people studying and working in London do because the accommodation is so unaffordable. And some of my friends had longer. My tutor and many other workers commute to London from the Newcastle area.
    A lot of people at uni go home on weekends or travel for sporting commitments, spending 7 hours a week to commute for university is nothing major, but of course I would assume your days will be crammed and tiring. I was still able to use my commutes to do most of my seminar preparation work and the occasional bit of reading. I would actually say I did more work on trains and waiting for the off peak time than any other time. Though don't rely on that; it's just a good use of time since you may not be able to do much else.
    In terms of social life, it will be a bit more difficult, especially if the intake at your uni are mostly locally based. At my uni (in London), almost everybody was in the same position so we all understood each other and were able to have some good nights/evenings out.
