Example costing accommodation and travel
We recommend that students do not travel daily to distant placements. All students are actively encouraged to take accommodation for the duration of their placement to avoid resultant tiredness when undertaking 12 hour shifts.
If based on our Plymouth campus, we endeavour to ensure that no more than half of the placements overall will require double accommodation in other locations.
The indicative cost of accommodation for 5 nights ranges from £50 - £130 per week dependant on location of the trust in which you will undertake placements.
Examples of the current cost of rail travel (2019) for 12 weeks is shown below estimated on 7 days travel per week
Plymouth – Exeter return is up £1000 depending on the number of days travelled.
Plymouth – Truro return is up to £650 depending on the number of days travelled
Plymouth – Torquay return is up £700 depending on the number of days travelled
Plymouth – Taunton return is up to £1400 depending on the number of days travelled
