Why I've Decided To Do A Degree


If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook then it will be no surprise to you the title of this post. But if you don't, then here it is, in February 2017 I will be starting a degree through Open University. I will be studying Business/Marketing and it will be part time and take me quite a while, but it means I can still work full time, move out with my Boyfriend and do everything else I have planned for this year which I just wouldn't be able to do if I was studying full time. 

It's something I was thinking about for 6 months prior to me applying for the course. Then I bit the bullet and decided to apply and see what happened. Well I'll tell you they accepted my application instantly, to which I was amazed and honestly did not think would happen, but here we are! I applied for my student loan and after weeks of waiting, the letter finally came through that I was accepted and would get the loan. It all happened so quickly and I don't know if I was quite ready. I absolutely wanted to do the degree but it was so scary, and all the thoughts going through my head.. "would I be able to balance everything?" "Could I get this done?" "Was it worth it in the long run?" "Is this even a good idea?"

The answer to all my questions was yes, of course I would be able to achieve anything I set my mind to. 

Open University was the best option, I could study in my spare time, I could go to tutorials on days off if I wished to, they sent through absolutely everything I needed. It means that I can start studying from the comfort of my own home with the world at my fingertips, literally. My books and everything I need are currently being posted out to me and I cannot wait to get stuck in to them on my week off, so I have a clear study plan when I start in February.


I will definitely be tracking my progress and keeping you updated with study updates and how I'm doing. It feels so odd to be a student again, and I'm sure people will forget that I am since I'm doing it part time. It's true I will have a lot on my plate from now on but it will be so worth it in the long run, I cannot wait to see what the future holds with doing a degree, and eventually having it too!

Stay tuned for further updates!
