Considering doing the combined 120 hour course, but not sure if my internet is good enough for it - it's a 3 mobile broadband package, with 25GB usage per month.
Is there much Skyping / videos / elements that are quite GB- or MB-consuming?
Not even sure if I will take the course yet; I'm stuck in a state of indecision as it's a big step. Thailand internship interests me but the money and my reticence is a bit off-putting!
Any help on the above would be greatly appreciated!

Don't worry about the bandwidth, there's not a lot of tech-heavy stuff required. Course content is mostly text-based and you can save external links and resources for future reference or downloading on a better connection. There are optional webinars (skype-style webcam content) three or four times a week lasting 45min each but again, if they interested you then you could pop down to an internet cafe or local library if their connection was better at the sceduled time. Good luck deciding :)
