Part-Time Studying Advantages and Disadvantages

A college education is very important in the twenty-first century. By going to a two year or four year institution a student opens the door for many more opportunities in life, especially for a higher paying job.The importance of a college education is also accentuated because of the opportunity to gain valuable resources during your tenure. The more connections which are collected during your college career, the more options you will have when you begin your job search. I think I made the best decision by choosing the aculty of Touristic and !ommercial "anagement because this college will prepare me for a life long career or profession# here the innate talent, behavior, and interest are being molded to reach the highest potential of the student, utili$ing various ways to bring out what is best and what can be further improved to match or to e%ceed the best at present time. &nlike other students I chose to follow the part-time courses.There are many opinions about the way students are able to study , either full time or part time.Both of them have advantages and disadvantages. or e%ample by studying full time, the advantage would definitely be the ability to concentrate completely on your studies without having any other worries such as work pressure. 'n the negative side, the cost for full time studies would have to be borne, thus if you are not working then you would need to fund it through a loan or maybe a scholarship. 'n the other hand, part time studying has its own sets of benefits and drawbacks as well. irstly the greatest advantage of part time study is being able to combine your studies with your work or family commitments. (art time study offers a fle%ibility to those

looking to balance the two sides of their life, and the financial benefits of being able to continue working and pay for your studies as you progress. In addition it offers opportunities in situations where traditional education has difficulty operating #students or employees with scheduling or distance problems can benefit because distance education can be more fle%ible. "oreover there are lower costs for course material and staff involved in teaching . It is also less e%pensive to support and is not constrained by geographic considerations. or instance another advantage of studying part-time for me is that I have time to continue my hobby, fotball. I have been playing fotball for )* years , I can say that this is my passion and I didin+t want to stop practicing it , but in the mean time I wanted to go to college , so part time courses are perfect for me. ,ue to part time courses I can combine education with sport for a better mental and physical development. 'f course part time studying has also disadvantages. or e%ample by working full time and studying part time, you would most probably be giving up your evenings or weekends, sometimes even both. -hich means less .uality time with family or friends until you complete your part time studies. Besides, you may also face stress and an%iety issues, especially when you have e%aminations or when assignment deadlines are near.In addition , when you have to study for an e%am you don+t have enough e%planations such as in the classroom,so you may have difficulties in understanding. /our health might even be affected if you do not get enough rest or sleep, thus you would need to be e%tra careful if you are doing two things at a time. (art time studies would usually also take longer to complete in terms of years. urthermore students may have the feeling that they don+t belong to a structure and friendship or closely knitted groups are almost impossible to be formed. -hat is more,due to the fact that part time students can+t attend courses the lack of face-to-face interaction with a teacher and with the peers gives the feeling of isolation as people no longer sociali$e. To sum up even if I+am studying part time , in this past months I managed to learn many new things while I continued my sport activities. It hasn+t been easy for me to organise my schedule but

without hard work you can+t become a succesfful person. Taking everything into account college education plays a challenging part on a student life because it offers hard task that produces good outcomes no matter if you are studying part time or full time.
