    Default What to study

    I would like to get into study again, either TAFE or online course.
    Im just not 100% sure on what though...
    A cert 4 in HR or Events are the main ones Im thinking about atm. Has anyone done these? Are they things you can easily do online?

    Would you consider uni at all? TAFE prices have risen to unrealistic proportions, the quality of the qualifications just doesn't reflect what you have to pay for them.
    I think HR would pretty much be offered through all universities. Otherwise i imagine there would be TAFE courses. Maybe have a look at OTEN.

    Are you studying for a career change or for interest or both? Will you be paying off the fees or using HECS? Are you hoping for your own business or working for someone else? Lots of questions as it would depend on your plan on how you would use the quals.

    I have always felt I wouldnt be smart enough to go to uni..... I dont know why I suppose its no different to any other study.

    Events is something I am interested in but dont think I will get far with it where I live.
    My main aim in study is a change in career, no interest in being the boss or having my own business but I want to love what I do.

    Hi OP! Please don't pass off uni because you don't think you are smart enough! There is so much support available now if you do find yourself struggling! Don't limit yourself! I am doing an external uni degree at the moment - I never thought I could do it but am!!

    I was exactly the same. I always thought of uni as some place where only the smart people went. I was so so wrong! Anyone can do it, even if you aren't that academically inclined. I've done diplomas at tafe and the workload was harder, the assessments were harder,and they had more stringent marking criteria meaning it was easier to fail a tafe subject than a uni subject. You probably wouldn't think it but uni actually offers a hell of a lot more in the way of support than tafe too. You could always start off small and do one or 2 subjects, or prehaps even do a foundation course that uni's offer for free. Just something to consider i guess.

    If HR is your thing you look into a bachelor of business with a HR major?
