What does study or training involve?

Study or training usually involves enrolling at a tertiary education organisation, and will involve one or more types of learning, which can be anything from on-the-job-training or formal lectures to self-directed study. Usually you will be working towards some type of qualification.

Depending on the type of study or training you begin, you will likely need to spend a good part of every week on your courses. For many people, this means balancing work and study.
