Do you know the old proverb, “it’s never too late to go back to study”? I certainly can relate to it, I finished my studies in France in my early 20’s and then almost 10 years later I was back to university, but this time in Australia! Let me say it’s never too late to take on further study.
Why am I telling you this? Well, the point here is not to brag. My point is that you don’t want to be an old lady looking back on her life and regretting that she didn’t study enough or that she could have had a better career.
Whether you are seeking a promotion or a total career change, we all need to enhance our skills via education. It isn’t too late for you to improve your education levels and it doesn’t have to take up all the little spare time you have.

Flexibility is the key
By using their study planner, you can create your own personalised study timetable to fit around your work and personal commitments. As online students, time management is vital. Creating a weekly study plan and blocking off set times each week will help ensure you study smart. Having the right study techniques from day one is crucial when studying online. Whether it’s at home or in a library, choosing a study space that is quiet, comfortable and more importantly, distraction-free is key to ensuring success.
How it works
You need to be realistic and pick study times that work for you. Some people work best in the morning while others work best at night. Find the right time for you and stick with it. Utilising the online study planner and getting into a habit of studying every day will help you succeed in your online course. Use this tool to create a weekly schedule to fit your studies around your personal and work commitments.
