    I’ve got an offer for Salford for September 18 but my partner has been offered a job opportunity in Chester, is it realistically a commutable journey?

    Uni will be 3 days a week generally but while on placement will be 5 days a week so I’m thinking it might not be the best idea to commute?

    I loved Salford though so will be gutted if I can’t make it work! Anyone else done a similar commute or can offer any advice?

    Why not live in between and make your partner share the commute? Even then it is still doable.

    Its about 1hj40 mins., just alter where you live and halfway makes it less than an hour for both of you.

    Thanks for your reply. I’ve been looking at areas in between but still wasn’t sure if commuting into Manchester would be horrendous in rush hour as I’m not too familiar with the journey! I’ll keep looking into different areas in between, thank you.

    Do the commute as a practice run to give you an idea.
