Hi guys, I am starting my business course, and I have to decide which university is worth going:
-Birmingham City University (business)
-Coventry University (business and management)

From where i live BCU Is 1 hour and coventry is 1.30/2 hours and based on the reviews coventry University is considered better for business course than BCU.
I don’t know if to go to an average uni (BCU) but near or to go to a better uni (Coventry) but far from home.
I want to know if the travel time is an issue when studying at the university, does the uni really gets makes busy with its assignment, study, homework... ecc.

So is it worth travelling from 1 to 2 hours more per day to go to a better university???

Please guys give some advice!!

I wouldnt commute more than an hour and hate it even then.
Considering your choice of unis, then I would apply for a course with foundation year if it got me into a better year or resit.
Why cant you resit and just get better grades?
What other unis are close to you?

i live smack bang in the middle of bcu and coventry uni (my mum actually lectures in coventry and she used to lecture at bcu !) so basically, they’re not incredibly far from each other, yes an extra 30 minutes/45 if it’s rush hour but they’re both very accessible from each other! choose where ever you see yourself fitting for the next few years

however i do understand that commuting might make this different and so affect your choice! idk if this helped haha!

Can't you live in halls? At 1hr30 home it would be very easy to go every weekend if you wanted.

Tbh, they are both pretty close in distance from you really (it's not like a difference of 4 or 5 hours).

Go the university you prefer (and try not to rely solely on reputation). Is there a reason that you can't live in halls?

It was my understanding they mean a daily commute.

I'd go to Coventry but get halls any commute over 30 mins would really not help you out academically or in your social life.
