Thinking of following my childhood dream, I can start studying with Open Universities this month. I am in Admin and have been bored for about 7 years!

I could have written your post word for word four years ago. I graduated from the Curtin Uni/OUA four year degree in July last year. Best thing I ever did, to follow the dream I'd had forever. Don't do it though if you want permanent work because there is very little out there. I am relieving which suits me but I think students should have their eyes wide open with regards to job opportunities for permanent work before embarking on the journey.

Thanks, good to know.
I am going to do it, course starts in 2 weeks. I'll be part time until I think I can handle full time or sort out a working/studying pattern. It's a bit scary but exciting! I haven't studied for 15 years.
Did you work during full time study? I am a single mum so have to work part time, but want to graduate sooner than 8 years!
