It's definitely been tough doing it part time with work and fitting everything else into life, but it's worth it
I've been studying for the past year and a half (did my Fitness course part time, then a few months break, then my Cert IV in Massage full time, then a few months break and now my Diploma in Remedial Massage part time) so I'm at the end of a long, hard slog!!
But then just I think, people go to uni for a LOT longer than that, especially if you want to do something like Law or Medicine!!
