    Default Tafe and Uni at the same time?

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has studied at tafe and uni at the same time? I'm not entirely sure about my degree choice, and I want to get a job now, rather than in a couple of years time, in a slightly different area which requires a cert 4. I'm hoping to do the certificate, which is only one day a week for about 9 months, and 2 units per semester of uni (external). Just wondering if this is do-able?

    Hi Summerly,

    i have just done the same thing. I have 2 kids and doing both online. It's a lot to handle. Just have to be organised.

    Did is you end up enrolling into both??

    Hi MsCandi,

    yes, I have enrolled in both. Fingers crossed I can cope with both, if not I'll drop a uni unit and do more over summer. It's really hard to know what the right thing to do is. Did you have to do a work placement as part of any of your courses? I think that is the part that is worrying me at the moment.

    Yep, I did both. Uni FT Mon-Thurs, TAFE full day Saturday, work 20 hours per week. It was crazy, but pre-kids so manageable. Hats off to those studying with young kids
