Episode Info

Episode Info: http://returningtostudy.com/13 (@joshuacliston) In this episode we take a quick look at the ever growing number of University and TAFE style short courses that are available to mature-age students in Australia. We also discuss some of the simple ways a new returning-student can prepare themselves for the upcoming study, and maybe even dip their toes in the academic waters a little before diving in to FT or PT study. Types of short courses: 1) TAFE short courses and intensives. 2) Single-subject University courses. 3) A "Udemy" or other online training course/program. 4) Reading and/or listening to 5-10 respected books in your field of interest (F.O.I). 5) Looking out for Podcasts, YouTube videos and even iTunes U lectures in your F.O.I. The whys (or benefits) of taking a short course: 1) Up-skill yourself and get yourself back into the student-mindset. 2) Allows time for you and your invested parties (family, friends, workmates, etc) to adjust to your new student-mindset, your evolving study-schedule, and in the end, should give all of you a much better idea of the academic commitment required by your F.O.I. 3) If it turns out that have chosen an area of study that really doesn't gel with you, you can easily move away from that F.O.I and into another without having incurred financial load that a full-course might demand. Cheers, and all the best with your current or future studies. ~ joshua c liston Tw: @joshuacliston (@joshuacliston on Instagram and fb.com/joshuacliston on Facebook)
