On campus study beats correspondence for balancing family life

(100 word version)

Balancing university with family can be difficult, but on campus beats correspondence, according to two students.

Aislinn Brewitt decided to study on campus after finding correspondence difficult.

“Studying by correspondence requires so much discipline and if you don’t understand a lecture it can be difficult to contact the tutor,” Ms Brewitt said.

“On campus, the only down side for me is working the lectures in around my children,” she said.

Olivia Trueman is studying on campus, and also has a young child whose needs she has to balance with her study.

Ms Trueman said studying on campus full time has been quite inflexible, but that Griffith’s new stream lining system will hopefully make it easier.

“This will be better and give me more time for myself, work, my child and other commitments,” Ms Trueman said.
