          Is full-time studies better or should I consider part-time studies and part-time work?

          Which one is better? I'm currently an NSF, going to ORD in 7-8 months.

              How about part-time studies and full-time work?

              I did that while in NS. Book out, go to school. ORD-ed and graduated at the same time.

              If you can manage your time well and willing to stretch yourself, this would be a great option.

                  Hi Anon,

                  I believe this would boil down to which is your priority. For me, I choose full-time study @ SIM & full-time work (my work allows me the flexibility for me to manage my own schedule.

                  I have friends who work full time & study part-time. This allows you to be able to support your studies, and at the same time, network & mingle with other working adults. However, it might be quite taxing on your health as part-time classes are usually 7 pm-10 pm and possibly even on Saturdays.

                  Another group of friends study full time & work part-time. If you go to a private uni, your classes are probably only 2-3 days a week (if you cramp it, 8-3 or 12-6 pm) then the rest of the days, it’s free for u to work. A downside might be missing out on potential group project meetings/ bondings etc.

                  Hope this helps! Cheers
