I've just started (in week 4 now) my first unit of a masters degree by distance and I'm really struggling. I can JUST get the required reading done, but that leaves no time for working on assignments or doing any of the reflective questions, and realistically I'm not even fully understanding what I'm reading because I'm in such a rush to get it done. This week, my required readings total 226 pages, made up of 3 text book chapters and 4 journal articles.
I'm on parental leave at the moment so have no idea how people manage study, work AND a family? I'm going back to work part-time next month and I'm seriously freaking out! I'd love to know how others manage the huge workload!
