keep working or make a further education

October 23, 2011 7:16pm CST
These days I feel wondering that whether I should stay in my present job or take an exam of postgraduate. Now I am a teacher in a senior school with a relatively low salary of 1,800RMB per month. And I can hardly make a living and felt quite frustrated by the position. I want to change it better, otherwise I would be in trouble of finance. However, the accessing fee of postgraduate seems quite high,too. It is so sad if I can not afford my studying fee when I successfully admitted by some universities. That is also an annoying problem. So if you were in my position, what should you do then? please give me some advice. many thanks.

Life is not easy for everyone in the world. And money is very important, for living, further education etc. I have been considering changing jobs for some time. But it is difficult for female in my age. They'll ask, have you married, have you given birth to a child? No, my answers are both no. So not easy.

I would try to save up some money for my studies first. I wrote that you don't earn much, but maybe it would still be possible to save up some money if you cut back on some of the things that you spend money on every month. Even if you are only able to save up a relatively small amount of money every month I think that you will able to save up the money eventually. It might take a while, but at least you know that getting closer to your goal. Another option is to combine your current job with a part time job, but I know if that is possible, because I know know much you work at the moment. When you have saved up some money you can take the education that you want.

Me had a wish also to achieve some more studies,however the fees and affording that much money is not that easy. Anyways hope u get good percentage so that u can ask for some help from the universities.There can be a fund which can help students who can not get to the costs of the fee structure.

It's so sad that we have little opportunity available for people like you who are willing to work hard for a better living. I hope there would be a scholarship that you could get. It would be hard for you to leave your work because it is your source of income unless you could get a scholarship which will also give you cash allowances for your other needs. Wishing you all the best! Good Morning!
