I'm a Year 12 thinking of studying Eng Lang, Linguistics or History at University and Lancaster Uni seems like a good choice for any of those. However, I live 150 miles away from Lancaster and am wondering if I should take distance from my family into account
no, u have to find the university which is siutable for u
Distance is an important factor to consider and can affect your ability to cope at university without your family being able to support yoy easily but if you're really want to go there then distance shouldn't stop you.
No, ignore above. You will adapt to the distance. Remember, there are people who fly across the world to come to UK unis and survive the "ordeal" with relative ease. Don't make 150 miles into something it is not.
Hmm, just got an offer from Lancaster, two years running. But it is far to travel, it is a problem.
If you have to take a train to get back home, distance becomes less important. You may only save, say, 1 hour either way by going to the other university instead of Lancaster.
