Of course, with anything, there are good and bad points. In this case the good outweighs the bad and a lot of the cons can be changed by your attitude towards studying and travelling and your own determination. As you are travelling, you may find the motivation to sit down and do work to be very hard, when there are other things you could be doing. Remember, places aren’t going anywhere if you sit down and take half a day to complete some work. If you know this is something you will struggle with perhaps create a planner of times you know there is nothing you want to see, or no events on so that you will not get distracted and keep putting off your work. It may also be hard to find a place to study, especially if you are in a hostel. Find a quiet café or library and make that your dedicated work space. Don’t try to complete work where you know you can’t concentrate, as chances are it won’t be your best.
Gaining a masters degree can be very beneficial to increase your knowledge on your chosen subject and your career. Travelling and still taking the time to study shows potential bosses that you are determined, motivated and can plan accordingly. Doing what you love and still getting an education has never been easier.
