Living far from uniWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
With that length of commute, it might be impractical to live that far away assuming that the course will be on-person. Depending what course you are studying you could be in every day, with sessions starting at 9am, therefore it would be mean leaving the house at 5.45am at the latest! I would recommend that she either considers moving closer to the University, or perhaps considers a different, more local University.

Hope you're doing okay
I agree with University of Liverpool Student Rep, that is a difficult commute!
So, if circumstances allow, I would recommend your sister considers moving into nearby student accommodation or attending a more local university.
Six hours of travelling every time she needs to be on campus would quickly become draining I'm sure
All the best,

I agree with the other ambassadors, it'll be a long commute if your sister is travelling for 6 hours each day.
Is there anyway she can move closer to the uni? Either on campus or in private halls?
Your sister will quickly become tired and once she gets home at night she'll probably want to sleep but still have prep work to do for her classes the next day.
University is also about the experience, so if your sister moves to her uni city she'll have the time to join clubs and societies and get involved in other aspects of uni life
Hope this helps!

I agree with the other posts saying that a 6hour commute would be tricky, especially if classes are early in the morning. However, if moving closer to uni isn't an option, I would advise your sister to speak to the timetabling team to see if they are able to put her in classes that are around the middle of the day to make the commute more manageable.
