I'm going to uni next month as a PT student to do an MSc. I currently work FT but am cutting my contract to 80% for the duration of the course. My hours are also being annualised as I will be studying 40 credits in one semester and 20 in the other, so I can do more office hours during the semester where I have fewer study hours, and vice versa. month

It will still be tough.

I also have 3 teenage DC.

I’m hopefully starting a part-time masters around pretty much full-time work. Pretty much because I’m currently working freelance, so full-time hours from home week by week, but if I needed to take a few days/a week off here and there to cram some extra study in I could.
Despite this feeling a bit nervous at the prospect! I did my first degree as a mature student too but only needed to work a bit part-time during that.

I'm just about to start university for the second year as a part time student around full time work.

I am seeing a lot of posts about parents getting their DC ready for university. Are there any other people here who are preparing to go back to University around full time work? smile
