I've been studying social work, and really enjoyed the subjects, but the more I think about it, I really don't want to *be* a social worker.

So, I've applied for Graduate Entry Nursing, starting in 2013.

Just wondering who else has applied to start studying next year?

(ETA: my boys are 2yo and nearly 5)

Me.  ph34r.gif Not that I have told many people yet. I have completed a year of this degree already (never finished it as I transferred to a different degree). That was eight years ago and while I don't regret the degree I did finish, all this time I feel I could have made a great occupational therapist.

I started a Cert 4 in Small Business Management in March this year. I will still be studying this next year, but I hope to get it finished by mid year.

I have had a long break after completing my first 4 subjects, only 6 more to go. So I will have to return to it soon.

Charles Darwin offer it externally. I'm in Tasmania and the university of Tasmania also offers it fully externally with no on campus requirements. University of Tas is my preference.

I've appled to a PhD and the wait is doing my head in. Was supposed to be an 8 week waiting period - I've been waiting six weeks so far - but I applied for a scholarship at the same time and scholarship applications don't close until the end of October and applicants aren't notified until December. I've been told, even though I applied to do the degree regardless of whether my scholarship application is successful or not, that I have to wait until December to find out of the outcome of both applications.

I'm kicking myself because I think I have Buckley's of getting the scholarship (I'm researching writing, other people are researching sciences, I can't compete with that), so I've probably wasted two months waiting for a scholarship I won't get....

Oh well.

I really hope I my PhD application is successful.

I've applied for a scholarship to complete a graduate certificate in Autism studies externally, two subjects per semester for 1 year. I should hear back about that in a week or two, still not sure if this was a wise move or not. I will be working part time as well as studying, my children are 11 in dec and 3 in feb and we are kind of TTC #3 so may find myself slightly overwhelmed. Hmm.
