Been lurking this site for some years since I started college in 2010. I left college & went straight into work as I had had enough of education & wanted to get out into the world earning some money. I fell into footwear retail & absolutely love it (well, the footwear side, not so much the retailing!) & have now decided at the age of 22 that I want to study Footwear Design at DMU.
Obviously I have a few things to think about. I've decided I want to study part-time for a few reasons. I think I would make the most of the course this way - I don't want to get stressed & end up rushing assignments/projects etc; I want to put 100% into it, I think I could make bigger waves, make more contacts & develop more in six years than I can in three & also I have commitments financially so I need to be able to earn a decent amount at the same time.
My issue is that I currently have a FT job within the industry but I work hard. At present I am just ticking over energy & motivation wise so I feel that with my current role I couldn't manage university as well. My job only just manages to cover my outgoings BUT it is within the probably the worlds biggest footwear company but I absolutely adore the company & their name obviously looks good on my CV so...
Do I find work in an unrelated industry which is better paid & less stress or do I stick at it to have the companys' (sp?) name on my CV OR do I get a job within the industry with a smaller company for the same money but obviously less work load so I can put the most into my studies?
& for anyone else who studies this course, what is the timetable like? I've tried to contact the university but to no avail.
Thanks in advance to anyone that replies
Which way to turn?
