Part-time Learning

More and more people are committing to part time study and those who do find that they improve not only their qualifications and job prospects but also gain confidence, experience a sense of achievement and, not least make many new friends.

In some cases, part time study may be the only practical alternative to studying full time. However, there are in fact many reasons why you may decide to study part time. For example:

  • You need additional qualifications but you don't want to stop work while you get them
  • You need to update skills or acquire new ones
  • You are thinking about changing your career so need different qualifications, but you want to get these gradually rather than do anything too dramatic
  • Parts of a course are of special interest to you, but not the whole course
  • You suddenly find that you have to stop studying for a while but want to return to it at a later date - part time study is more flexible in these circumstances
  • You quite like the idea of getting a 'taste' of what studying might involve

Whatever your particular reason for opting for part time study, for most people its overriding benefits are that it enables you to 'learn and earn' at the same time.
