    Im looking for some advice....

    I've been given an unconditional offer at UCLAN to study Operating Department Practice starting this September. I've also been offered a full time permanent job for Hmrc that I'm starting in the next few weeks.
    The problem is, I can decide whether to take up the offer at uni or whether to just stick with my full time job. The problem is they both come with extremely different lifestyles. One is 9-5 and the other could be all kinds of unsociable hours. This doesn't necessarily bother me. I just can't decide which would be best.
    I'm 25 and due to finances this is the last chance I have of being supported through uni.

    Any advice?

    In all honesty, I would go to university and pursue that degree, providing you enjoy it. It's not very often you get that chance to go to university and the outcome could mean a better job which you enjoy doing. Ultimately though it depends if you think the timing is right. If you decide on university and it turns out that it's not for you, that's a risk you would have to take. Nothing that we say on here can really properly influence your decision but I would say go with whatever you feel is the right choice. Best of luck
