Is bradford uni worth the 5hr train trip?Watch
Im looking at unis in general and was wondering what you thought of a 5hr trip to Bradford. Is it worth the time and effort?

Yeah definitely, if you're keen on going there. I'm keen on applying to Durham but it would take me 6-8 hours to get there so i'm not sure whether to bother (argghhh), but five hours would be manageable i reckon. Costwise, if you don't want to go home too often/are rich (hehe) then it should be fine.
I thought about going to Durham, before realising how far it was. I'm guessing you live on the south coast, as it would take me a similar amount of time to get there. I mean you could fly across the atlantic in that time! I hate long train journeys, even after reading Harry Potter
Yep i do live on the south coast Plus i have very little experience of trains . But it sounds like such a nice place and has an amazing geog dept apparently
You can fly from Southampton to Teesside (with BMI baby i think) for about £50, then get the bus to Durham from Teesside airport (really close. The airport is by Darlington in Co Durham). I've thought about going home from Oxford this way. Costs £50 so cheaper than the train, even with a young persons rail card. It would be worth a try if you love Durham.
what course are u doing just out of interest?
although if you've found a way please please tell me
IC125/225 yes, first class on GNER certainly, a nasty 142/411 no thank you (not that you'd get the latter 2 for 5 hrs)
University of Bradford has a good reputation anyway.
