A Virtual Open Evening with Hull Online
- Minimum 15 hours a week. And I would say that is--
that's reasonable 15 hours a week I would say is your minimum. If you're going to do yourself justice and if you're going to get out what you want from the master's programs, I would just say that if there are times if you have a commute to work, you just have to change your mindset for the time that you're doing this.
If you have an hour's commute to work on a train, instead of maybe looking at Facebook, looking at social media, have some articles that you could read on your phone or on your tablet and use that time. It's an hour, bit-sized chunks. That suits me. It might not suit everybody.
Some people might like to set aside two hours. You might like studying at night or early in the morning.
But you do have to commit to the time.
And again, I'll give you an example where I just didn't.
And I said to you before, it's effort in and results out.
One of the modules, work just didn't allow, family life didn't allow. And I think I missed maybe about 50% of the content.
And I thought I could wing it, get by, put my submission in, and the results spoke for themselves. So I didn't get the result I wanted, and I had to do a resubmission, which then added extra time pressure on me for the next module.
So yeah. If you need help, the help is there. So reach out early, ask for that help, and Hull is very supportive for people's personal circumstances. Work does get in the way, family life does get in the way, and Hull understand that. And we'll support that.
They can all say that maybe we don't have the money, but it's an investment. You mentioned it's an investment in yourself.
It was probably maybe a lifelong quest to see how far I could push myself that I had basically hit the pause button for those six, eight years. It was--
the time was right in terms of I used the pandemic when we were all in lockdown to do some self-development, do some online courses through little snippets through Udemy or other providers.
And that sparked an interest in learning again.
And then I thought rather than just a little certificate for a one hour online course, why not test your theory, test your practice?
And let's look at moving what I'm learning to the next level. Who knows, it may be a PhD program after the master's?
So we'll see. As you mentioned, education and learning is a lifelong thing. And I mentioned that a journey from novice to expert.
Certainly, when you enroll in the master's, you're back to novice. And you grow through that journey through your--
back in to--
hopefully back into expert and that learning will stand everybody in good stead as they go forward in their life and in their career.
