So an update on the study front:
🔸I’m really nervous about this and I don’t know if I even have half a shot at being accepted…
🔸I looked at this course years ago and it’s basically my dream course but it’s in a different state. (I’m just not in the position to move away from supports etc)
🔸 well I looked again the other day and it seemed to have the option of ‘intensive mode’ where you spend two weeks per semester on campus
🔸emailed to confirm
🔸 yep, it’s possible to do it by flying in for little blocks!! (Plus it’s in my favourite city so I’d get little trips without the stress of moving permanently ha)
🔸 but. Since I don’t have a relevant undergrad, I would need to write an application talking about why I’m interested.
🔸 also would need to take a chemistry bridging course, which is happening pretty soon and they’ve said to wait until I’m accepted into the degree to enrol in the chem course.
🔹 oh and I’ve realised I haven’t mentioned what the course actually is 🤦🏻♀️ it’s a course about conservation of art work/cultural materials. I think you learn a bit about restoration as well but the focus seems to be on preventing damage now. So like an awesome collision of art and science!! Plus there are opportunities to study some of the course overseas (bali!!) and it just sounds absolutely amazing. Today I’m going to be reading and watching as many documentaries as I can do that I have a better understanding and points for my essay. Honestly just seems perfect though!!!
