At the moment I'm working full time (36hr/week) for my uni placement and have to until the end of June.
I start my two external courses In march which are an advanced maths subject for engineering and a hydraulics course.
I've just started to get really worried about how I'm going to manage my time as I have never had to do this before. I work 8-5 and go to the gym for an hour each afternoon, i've drawn up a rough time table And seem to have at least 12 hours during the week for study.
One of the things I am most worried about is becoming totally burnt out before the term is even finished.
Sorry this is so long but does anyone have any sugestions or experience on how to deal with this? Thanks!

These are external courses specifically designed for you to take whilst doing your industrial placement? 12 hours a week seems a little bit harsh, 8 hours is more reasonable. Perhaps you have over-estimated.

I work a full time job and study in the evenings - I have lectures 3 nights a week, and I study at the weekend on Saturday for 5 hours and Sunday for 5 hours - yes its hard, and about half way through each term I do get exhausted, but it's important to work through it and you do adapt... also coffee is my best friend
Keep up outside interests, because you will feel like your whole life is revolving around the course, but also remember that no matter how hard or tired you get, it'll be worth it at the end (or so I'm told )
