    Congratulations Dan. Full time or part time? What do you expect to do when you finish the degree - have you given up on wanting to be a fireman :lol:

    That's WONDERFUL, Dan! A good education with a permaculture bent -- what could be more perfect?

    Thanks everyone for your kind words and encouragement.. It has been this forum that has convinced me to go for it in the forst place.

    I'm pretty excited about it... However it is going to take a while. I'm doing via Distance Education. I have to do acouple of days every year in Orange at the campus however.

    The course admin is looking over aqll my information systems and Military qualifications now to see if I can get some advanced standing .. I hope so it is time saved and big $$$$$ saved as well.

    I hoping to do a vast amount of things ranging from Landcare officer to reseach work with VIDA. I would also like to start a Land Management Consultancy, with a commercial nature :) (have to make money somewhere) This would include a research farm in where I would like to get disadvantage kids from the city to come and work and learn, giving them invaluable skills and maybe another shot at life...

    Well that is the basic dream thus far amongst many others...

    What can I say I'm a dreamer, but think of all the things that wouldn't have happened if humans couldn't at least acheive some of their dreams. I would like to think I'll achieve some dreams before I die. Not all.. As I never want to be content with life.

    Dan I really admire your decision to keep learning and to ehlp yourself and others with your education.

    When I was in my late 30s, which is so far back now I can barely remember it, I returned to uni and went from being a nursing sister to a journalist. It was extremely hard work, I was working full time and raising a family, but it was one of the best things I ever did.

    It would be great if you could get credits for your previous experience. I wish you the best with your studies and I underatnd your excitment. 8)

    Go Dan the Man! It'll open your eyes to things you never knew were there...you'll love it (aside from all the hard slog :lol:) Permaculture training is a great advantage, it means you've already got the low-down on the hardest part- that everything is connected :lol:

    Am half way through a 4yr bachelor in Land and Water Science at Syd. Uni....funny that, I almost enrolled in the same degree as you, but ended up in Sydney (long story) I remember being very impressed with the subject options....Being older is a great advantage at uni, cause it means that you know why you are there

    Though it doesn't sound very cool, hydrology (very cool), microbial ecology and biometry (suckful stats but so valuble) have been some of the best subjects thus far.....Good luck : )

    Oh and for the record (shhh don't tell anyone, esp not Tezza, he'll call me a whipper snapper!) I'm 23.

    Cheers to you
    Ichsani

    I just left Sydney, and I tell you, was happy to see the back of it. :)
    Oh, oh don't worry your secret is safe with me, I won't tell Tezza..
