Last year my employer gave me one of those opportunities that are hard to turn down. After completing 9 years of distance learning to get my degree and masters they offered me the chance to do another masters. Oh dear. Nice but not more study. Trouble is, this kind of thing takes up a lot of your time.
So it’s going to be another 8 or 9 months of intense study and assignments interspersed with family, cycle training, work and ham radio. I still plan on optimising my Cobwebb antenna, setting up the QRP QRSS/WSPR beacon and attempting to get on air. By the end of this I should either have a degree in time management or failed in everything.
On the bright side I should be out of the books in time for next years Es season at the very least.
Good morning Allen, I have always found the long distance learning to be be much harder than just going full time. Much discipline is needed as the distractions are many. Congrats on your degree and all the best in getting the next.
Best wishes, Alex! Like Mike, I have great respect for those who do a degree while working a regular job and maintaining a family.
