With another year coming to a close, we once again begin to see people start to reflect on their past year and take note of what went well, what went poorly, and what they could have done differently. We all do it, and it’s one of the most admirable qualities that people have, trying to make small changes to their lives in an attempt to lead a happier life. For some, this means going to the gym, traveling, or spending more time with their families. Increasingly, however, people going back to school to try and further their education on their own time. The availability of part time courses and online learning has inspired many students to enrol later in their lives. Here are a few reasons why you should join them and enrol in a part time course for your New Year's resolution.
(Re)Discover your Passion
It’s never too late to reignite the fire in your belly for your something you are passionate about or to discover something new that excites and drives you. There’s no better feeling than being in love with your work or studies. Being passionate about what you do makes working feel less like work and more like a pursuit. Griffith offers a wide range of part time courses, perfect for students who want to lose themselves in their studies. You may find yourself in love with a whole new field of study and pursue that, or you can learn more about your current field and rediscover that initial passion you had for your field and build on it.
Take your Career Further
One of the biggest motivations for people going back to school is that they want to move upward in their careers, and currently they have hit a plateau. If you really want to move up in your current business or you want to move to a different field but you find those doors to be closed, then education is the key to opening those doors. Taking a part time course gives you the opportunity to add new skills and experiences that will make you more unique and make those new careers more available for you. With the availability of these part time courses, new job opportunities are now within arm’s reach.
Do it on your terms
What part time courses offer is not only the ability to take the courses you want to take, but also the ability to do it on your own time. You are a busy person, with a job or a family and going to school full-time just isn’t possible. The part time option gives you the ability to go back to school without putting the rest of your life on hold. Most courses are only a once or a few times a week, at night, or online, so it’s easy to fit them into your schedule. It’s all about giving the student the best opportunity for them to succeed.
Set and achieve new goals
Part time courses are an opportunity for you to push yourself towards accomplishing something new. You can set personal goals and work towards them in pursuit of a degree or certificate of your choosing. Having something to work towards and setting goals for yourself is very important to make sure that you don’t become stagnant in life. By setting and achieving these new goals you are constantly self-improving and you’ll find yourself feeling great.
