Why Deakin off-campus studies?
To my surprise (and other people’s) I have been more successful as an off-campus student than I ever imagined I would be and have found that studying is very rewarding! I work three days a week and I am married with two young children (seven and four years old) and being an off-campus student, I am able to combine family life, career and study.
After I have put the kids to bed and I have prepared for the following day I begin to study, usually around 9.00pm. With a solid routine, family support and dedication I am able to juggle everything and achieve my goals. I use a calendar and plot when assignments are due, including all short-term goals. I find it easier if I stay up-to-date than trying to catch up; however, if I have a special event planned, I’ve found that it is achievable to catch up. Off-campus study is flexibility at its best!
