Wow – what an amazing two years I had while completing a Diploma of Accounting through OTEN! I must admit I was in a bit of a rut before I commenced my studies, so I decided to pack as much “good stuff” into my life as possible and haven’t looked back! In the time that I studied with OTEN, I had two babies (in addition to the toddler I had), worked part-time, looked after my niece while my sister worked and STILL managed to complete my studies. The flexible learning allowed me to revolve my studies around my life, not the other way around.
I learnt so much more than just accounting. I learnt how much I can achieve when I put my mind to something I enjoy. I would not have attempted a University degree before I studied with OTEN, but I now have confidence in my commitment and my ability and I am studying a Bachelor of Accounting via distance education – what’s more, my TAFE Diploma counted as credits to my degree!
So, I am now loving life - juggling three small children, UNI, part-time work and finding time to enjoy my hobbies, including gardening and playing squash.
