Why Consider Part-Time Studying
As the cost of tertiary education is rising, the number of students across the country are falling, which is a double negative as the country is experiencing a chronic skills shortage across various professions. To improve this situation, educational institutions have to change their model of contemporary education by incorporating more flexible courses into the system. Part-time study towards degrees is one such innovation.
Many matriculants aspire to further their education, but they either simply cannot afford to do so at the time or are eager to begin working as soon as possible. Ambitious, young people saw university as a natural progression to landing their dream jobs, but now they have to rethink what three or four years without earning an income or gaining valuable experience means. With this in mind, part-time studying is an ideal option for those already in the workplace, who are looking for a career change or the opportunity for professional advancement.
