    At a bit of a cross-roads. I am considering going back to university to study pharmacy (to qualify as a pharmacist) but very unsure of its 'worth'.
    With being a returner I will have to fund the tuition fees myself. I may qualify for an amount of maintenance loan. Having a mortgage, bills etc I will most definitely have to get a part-time job and potentially rent out the spare room. However this will leave budgets tight for 4years.
    The drive to want to do the course is there, and if accepted I think I will excel. I am struggling desperately to decide whether to do this or continue on my current lower-ranked pharmacy job..
    Has anyone had/got any similar experience in this situation with any advise?

    Not in your situation but have you already done a degree, is that why your tuition won't be paid by SFE? How are you going to afford the tuition fees on top of living costs? Something to bare in mind..
