Hello all,

I’ve had an offer from Chester and I really love it, but I’m not ready to live away from home yet. I live in greater Manchester and I can’t drive yet so it would be an hour train commute. I don’t know what to do!!

Hey oliviacriesalot

I would recommend maybe doing the journey during peak traffic time just so you can get a feel for the commute, you will then be able to gain a better idea if travelling to uni by train is something for you.

You want to make sure that you make the best decision for yourself and the one that what will make you work better and focus on your studies.

I hope this helps.

Hi oliviacriesalot We're so glad to hear that you love Chester (we're pretty fond on it ourselves ). Chester is well connected in terms of transport but I absolutely agree with Liverpool Hope University in that you should try your journey out and see how you find it because ultimately you want to make sure it's the right choice for you.

Personally, I commute from the Wirral to our Riverside Campus for work and it takes about an hour+ door to door (on Merseyrail). I quite like the journey and I get to catch up on my reading or listen to a podcast too But if you would like to speak to some of our students who commute you can use our new platform Unibuddy... Both Tia and Sam commute.

Let us know if you have any questions - Charlie
