Studying From Home – 5 Reasons to Make The Most of Long Winter Nights

If you’re anywhere north of the alps, it’s been getting noticeably colder lately.  As winter arrives in full force, a familiar chill returns to the air convincing most of us that, actually, we’d much rather stay indoors at night in the warm rather than venture out into the dark, unwelcoming nights of December. 

So the question is, how do we make the most of the long nights in?  Rather than spending the winter sat in-front of the Television or skimming through Netflix, why not put your time into improving yourself.  Whether simply for enjoyment or with an eye to preparing for a new career or prospects, a home study course from ADL is  a great way to make the most of those long winter evenings. 

Here’s a few of the great reasons you might want to consider a course this winter:

1) You don’t fit around the course – the ADL course fits around you.

ADL’s courses are designed with an anytime, anywhere approaching.  Choose from our library of over 500 courses and begin studying whenever it is convenient to you.  With no timetables, no schedules or seminars to attend, you truly are in control of your studies, no matter how uncertain your life may be over the hectic festive season.

2) Be Ready for Spring

In many ways, businesses of all sorts are winding down as preparations for Christmas intensify.  Hiring for new positions largely slows as employees and managers take time off over Christmas and nobody, outside of Christmas only work, wants to take on new workers until the new year.  By starting a course of study now you can put yourself ahead of the pack when companies and employers get back on track in the new year. 

3) Flexible Payment Options

The festive season can be expensive and it can be hard to budget for everything.  Fortunately, ADL can offer a variety of payment options to suit a range or purses and wallets.  Begin a course of study without breaking the bank and still have enough money left over for parties and presents.

4) An Incredible Range of Courses. 

Did we mention our range of 500 courses?  Yes we did, but we didn’t elaborate on the immense range of possibilities ADL can offer.  Fancy an agricultural career?  We have an immense range of farming, horticulture and related courses covering everything from sheep to growing Australian native plants for the adventurous gardener. 

Or perhaps 2015 will be your year for business for which ADL can offer a great range of bookkeeping, management and other related business courses that will help push you to the head of the pack.  Then again, perhaps it’s time to escape the rat-race and choose a more self-sufficient life, in which case our course for self-sufficiency, permaculture and even bush-tucker might be of interest.

5) A Brain Needs Training

The brain is just like the rest of your body, and your capacity to learn is influenced by how much you do it.  Don’t let your mind go to sleep in-front of the box this winter.  Keep it lean and efficient by engaging in a course of education to push yourself and keep your brain fit, healthy and working at its very best.
