Scored fee-free study!
« on: March 31, 2015, 05:36:20 AM »
I was online marking work tonight, and an email came in from my old uni-  they are beginning a new online postgrad short-certification program, and were looking for alumni postgrad beta testers to undertake a number of courses- I applied and was accepted! It means I can take a number of modules (I'll take the max) in things like postgrad management/business/media, get certifications for it from a respected university, and not have to pay course fees!!! I love learning, plus it'll be really useful for applying for promotions/management stuff at work!!!  I know it's not really my badassity, more luck, but I had to share!

Part of being a badass is recognizing worthwhile opportunities and seizing them.
Statistically, everyone gets the same opportunities (more or less), but many people don't do anything with them.
So yes, still badass. Congratulations! That sounds really awesome.

Cool! There are also a lot of free courses online. Some have the option of paying something to get certification as well. Coursera, Khan Academy, Yale, MIT, etc.
