I live near Exeter and am hoping to study at Plymouth University in September. I’ve been having a think about whether to commute or not, especially with everything going on with the virus. I was wondering if anyone was in a similar situation to me and whether they are possibly going to be commuting from Exeter way to Plymouth Uni in September.

It’s very easy to commute between the cities, it’s an hour drive or an hour on the train, so it’s very doable. That being said, you may wish to stay in Plymouth as there’s plenty of student accommodation but you’ll save a lot of money in the long run by commuting if you don’t mind travelling 2 hours a day.

What's the difference in time it'll take if you took public transport vs car? For me, my 1st year bus journeys to uni took 2hr30mins (or 5hrs each day) whereas if I had a car it'd take 50mins (or 1hr40mins each day).

Therefore following simple maths I decided it'd be more economical to get a job, hustle hard and buy a car as it'll work out easier when it comes to studying.

It would take about 45mins in the car, and im hoping to use the loan to buy a car and by using the money I already have from working

I don’t think the travelling would bother me as I’m used to getting a 45min bus to my sixth form every day. So I’m thinking commuting would be the best option.

Hi,

It's great to hear that you may be joining us in September. With regards to commuting, although I live on campus, I would say it is very manageable as I know a few people who do it. It may depend on what you want to gain from your university experience, as commuting may be difficult if you want to go out clubbing a lot especially during freshers. If you were to commute you would save money on rent which is a massive bonus!

Let me know if you have any other questions about studying at the University of Plymouth

Take care,

You'll find that quite a few mature students commute. I will be but not sure how far out of Plymouth I'm going to be living yet but I think 1 hour is doable, its what I do for work at the moment. The things you need to think about with driving you need to factor in your fuel costs and parking. Whilst it may be that bit quicker it may cost you more in fuel and parking costs or the time you save on the drive may be taken up trying to find a free parking space. Also if you want to socialise and have a drink you wouldn't be able to do that with your car.
