Ready to Pay for My Education?
As you explore options to pay for your education, you may also want to consider if now is the right time to start your studies. How much time do you have available to study? You will need an average of 12 hours each week for each course, that’s approximately two hours of study each day for six days a week. If you plan to take more than one course, multiply your study hours by the number of courses you plan to complete simultaneously. Calculate your available time here!
You may also want to ask yourself, “Am I ready for distance education?” First consider completing one AU course as a self-funded student before considering other finance options. Learn more here!
