time

Save time

Yep! Study will take away more time. Time that you don't have (I'm sure). In the program, we'll look at time management techniques that work. Techniques you could apply to life as well as within your new study area.

alone

Combat loneliness

One of the biggest fears (mature age) students have when starting their course is being alone. Not being supported. Unable to find or make friends. The program will give participants resources to overcome this. And, you can keep in touch with UPP members at the end of the 10 weeks.

money

Find money

Education is not cheap. But there are programs, services and grants that could help you. Help with the direct cost. Or at least differ the cost to a time when you are working again. In UPP! will cover where you can find them and how to apply/make use of them.
