I’m starting a Masters in Information studies specialising in data Management (I’m an academic librarian). Studying distance and starting March. I fluctuate between looking forward to it and wondering WTF I’ve done, taking up study again when I only finished a bachelor 18 months ago...

 

Plan is to do it part time because with all my other responsibilities no way can I do more then 1-2 units (plan is 2 units semester 1, then 1 unit a semester and I’ll be finished October 2020. As I have been given rpl I only have to do 6 units and my uni runs a trimester.)

I'm doing a Masters of Communication majoring in Media Relations online. I've done my first subject and it has been great fun so far. I plan to do 1-2 subjects a semester depending on work.

I'm starting a nursing degree. Because I already have a degree it's a full-time 2-year program. I'm super excited to start!!

I signed up to the lifetime learners program (not a real thing, but real in that I cannot stop) and am still studying, lol. In fact, I am procrasta-studying right now - assignment due tomorrow. Mostly done.

 

Good luck with all of your courses this coming academic year, may HDs rain down upon you all.

I'm also back to a nursing degree, after starting a couple of years ago and it didn't work out as kids were very young. I did however complete 2 units, so I only have to do 2 units first semester while I settle DS into school, and then full time after that. I can't wait, it's great to be getting back into it!

I'll be studying a grad dip online in a Health related field. Starting off with two units this semester, hoping to finish in 18 months to two years. I finished my undergrad 20 years ago, so very nervous about getting back to it!

I'm going back to uni to finish my law degree - did just under one year of subjects back in 2010 but left it as I got a job interstate. Only doing one unit for now to see how I go as I'm working full-time

I will finally be finished at the end of the year if all goes to plan and I can get through the 10 subjects I need to finish!

 

I have no idea what I am going to do next but at least the degree will be done!

I applied to do my masters but they still haven't released any offers. It is driving me nuts. They said it could be another couple of weeks.

 

I'm quite annoyed because I don't know how I am supposed to plan my work year when I will have only a few week's notice between an offer and a start date.

needs to get out

I have 3 (out of 8) subjects to go to finish an online diploma in family history I am doing through the University of Tasmania. I am hoping very much to be able to complete these subjects and finish the course this year. Got results for the last subject I completed this week and did better than I thought, so starting the year on a reasonable note.

 

If I do manage to finish, I might apply for something else in 2020 at a local uni, as DS3 will be in kinder 15 hours a week so I will have some capacity to attend on-campus stuff. Maybe.

Nobodyelse - have you contacted them? I found out in November last year that I had gotten into the Masters program I wanted (and have been irritated by all the emails I've been getting since). As some uni's start their semester mid-Feb they are leaving it awfully late (mine doesn't start until 4th March but that's because they run a trimester).

 

I've found the textbook for one of my units already so am going to start reading a chapter here and there to get my brain back into the swing of it. I hope work calms down a bit though, I seem to be doing more and more bits and pieces and it's all driving me a bit nuts trying to keep on top of what I'm responsible for. At least they give me 2 hours a week or work time as Study leave so that will be helpful.

I’m starting my Masters of Social Work online via distance, will be 4 years part time. I’m terrified given I will be working 30 hours per week (dropping from 38 but this is as low as they would let me go), have 85% care of a 4 year old, no family support, and it says it requires 24 hours work a week. But I’m also pretty determined, so hopefully I can do it. I graduated from my undergrad in 2009, so after ten years out of study I’m feeling like I’ll be very rusty! Also, I need to get a desk, laptop, internet at home etc, plus textbooks. So it’s an expensive decision!!

Im still contemplating whether i'm going back to midwifery this year... a massive philosophical schism between the unis and my philosophies has made me really hesitant.

 

Looking at other unis of course, but its all a bit too hard at the moment. Most likely i'll take a leave of absence for this semester and reevaluate mid year - id really rather enrol in a masters in the field of nursing i'm already working in.

I'm doing my Masters of Advanced Social Work. Depending on thr timing of surgery I'll be having I may finish this year... it have 1 subject to go next year. I'm loving my course. The subjects have made such a difference to my practice and I'm applying pretty much everything I've learned. I have a little research project that I want to do at work so I'm even excited for my research subjects this year!

 

I just handed up an assignment last night, which was a mammoth effort to get done now the kids have decided not to sleep until late! But I got there, and I'm happy with what I handed up.

 

Newbun2014. Good luck. Most of my subjects haven't taken the "suggested/recommended " hours per week. My current one has a horrendous work load. But otherwise I've been pretty lucky so far. I'm happy to help if I can - moral support, reviewing essays etc. Even just talking about course content if you want.

 

 

Bees-knees how exciting!! Good luck. Do you have placement this year? What are you hoping to do next year?

 

Good luck everyone

Im not starting, but continuing my Criminology Degree. It feels like it is taking forever. It kind of is. Hoping in the next year or so to ramp up studies so I can get it done. I want to go on to do my Masters so my study journey is a long way from over and I worry about being able to build a decent career when Im done.

 

I do mine online which family ridicule and use 'university' (with air quotes when they speak) to talk about my studies. I hope the industry doesnt see it that way.

SL a large portion of university students use online or blended delivery now. I work at a uni and I can tell you the number of questions about why there isn’t an online option for some units is huge. It’s pretty much par for the course now. It also make university study more equitable because it provides greater access. No one is going to ask if you did it online or on campus. Nowhere is that stated on your transcript. (I did some study on campus and I much prefer online because I can do it at my pace and situate study around other responsibilities). Also I don’t know about the uni you go through but it has allowed the uni I have been to, to get people who are more specialised in their fields to teach units from anywhere in Australia, not just a central campus. Mean we get a lot of real life information as well as all the research and theoretical information.

I haven't studied since i finished school in 2001!

 

I'm starting next month online doing Building Surveying. I work FT and have no idea how many units I'll be able to do each semester between the 2 kids and work.

 

Super excited though :-)

I’m starting an online Bach of business next month - haven’t studied since high school. I work part time and have two little ones so hopefully I’ll be able to manage. Planning 1 or 2 units a semester.

I was notified yesterday that I have been accepted into the masters program. I'm in a bit of shock. I was an outside chance to get in as I don't have an undergraduate degree and was applying purely on work experience.

 

So I am starting up my own buisness and doing my masters... I think I might be insane.
