    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..
How are you feeling about your exams?
