Hey! For context, I have an offer from Liverpool to complete a foundation year at Carmel College before beginning my degree, and I plan to live at one of the (currently undecided) halls on campus, as that was recommended by the university.

For those who have done this before, or knows somebody that has/is, is it best to get the train or the bus to the college? They take almost the same amount of time, but is one easier/cheaper/overall better than the other?

Also, which halls would be best for rolling out of bed and onto said transport?

Hey! I'm also starting the foundation year at Carmel! What pathway are you on?

I can't help with the accommodation though as I'll be renting in Warrington, sorry!

Hi there

I hope you're well.

Both services are very similar, so it really is whichever you prefer / feel more comfortable doing. I would recommend that once you get here, to use both forms of transport and then decide - what might work for someone might not work for another!

I hope that's helpful!

Thank you for your advice! Do you know which bus the foundation year students need to catch to get to the college?

I've just recently finished my foundation year, but it really depends. You'll have to catch the early train for Carmel if you have 9ams, which is about 3 a week for me. Considering it's not off-peak times either, the train will cost quite a bit. When I took it at the beginning of the year I spent around £20 each week. It's a ~25 min journey and the walk from the station to Carmel is about 15-20 mins, which is why I went for the bus instead. I live in halls (Melville), and the bus stop was around 15 minutes away from me. The bus does take a long time though, around 45 minutes, and it is cheaper than getting the train, at least for me. You'll have to get the 10 bus as it drops you right outside of Carmel, not the 10a, since that'll drop you off a bit away from Carmel and it's a walk.
