Any tips for those who have done it?
In a nutshell:
Pros of Full Time:
Cons of Full Time:
I'm not at a masters level yet as I am pursuing a part-time bachelor's degree, but I assume it will definitely be more vigorous.
Working full-time while studying part-time is downright tiring. It involves sacrificing time that you'd have spent with your family and friends, sometimes even your hobby.
If for some reason, you tend to end work late or have late meetings, rushing to school can take a toll on your mental capacity to be attentive in class.
Plus, I'm not sure if the same applies for masters, I find that some of my modules are very touch-and-go. Like for example, maybe a full time degree would let students run a 'real' campaign for a public relations module? But for us, it was just on paper.
If I had the chance to start over and have enough finances to fund a full time programme without having to work, I'd take it.
Good luck though!
