MsC and PHd question


1 - I would like to take a MsC, but, since I work from 9h - 18h (official timetable, which in reality is more hours), I don't have time to continue with my studies, unless I deal with my company. The deal is to bring more flexibility to the working hours, but always work like at 100%. But, I don't want to loose my job, or give the impression that I will not be 100% available for the job (which isn't true). I would like to hear your opinion about this issue, and, if you've already passed this situation, how you solved it?

2 - How normally the enterprises react about this issue? The companies help?

3 - Is there any good university around the world that lecture MsC starting from 18h? If a university can only lecture MsC during the day, when they create their timetable, they take in count this issue? Ie, they put their subjects in the early morning or late afternoon, to ease people's life to attend the course?

if you job is not safe if you speak to you manager aboyt the possabilaty of reducing/shifing your working hours so that you can study then you job is not safe at all,

which country do you live in?
as here most companies will give you a little tiem off to persue a degree,
after all it benifits them in the long run.....

the other alternative is the open univercity

Where I live there's a possibility to either take classes in the afternoon (from 4pm to 9pm plus Saturday) or Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday. It's hard to work and attend all the classes, but it's possible if you really want it.

Some flexibility helps, of course. Try to explain that your studies will make you work better, with more new ideas and so on. That should work and is true at the same time
