Buried in exams, Australian rugby sevens star Emma Tonegato may have to skip the Eiffel Tower tour during the side's world series finale in Paris next week.
Australia were thumped 46-0 by Commonwealth champions New Zealand in the final of the Canada leg last month.
But having won the opening two legs, they're clinging to a four-point series lead and can reclaim the crown from the Kiwis if they qualify for the final of the French tournament from June 8-10.
Yet that isn't the only equation on the mind of Tonegato, who is a Bachelor of Occupational Therapy student at Australian Catholic University in Sydney.
She sat for one exam before Saturday's team departure and has another waiting when she returns.
"Putting my head down in uni work can be tough (on tour) so you have to pick and choose what you do," the 23-year-old said.
"During the last tournament in Canada I had two assignments due when I got home so I pretty much just stayed in the hotel."
Tonegato was inspired to follow her educational path by the health professionals who helped her grandmother, Julia Brown, recover from a stroke in 2015.
This year's hectic sevens schedule, including the Commonwealth Games and yet-to-come San Francisco World Cup, has so far meant Tonegato has missed a month of classes.
But she says studying helps take the pressure off her rugby and the university's elite athlete and performer program helps make it work.
"University gives me an outlet; it's an opportunity to escape, have a break from rugby and keep my brain stimulated," the outside back said.
"The prospect of having a degree makes me feel relaxed about the future."
Olympic gold medallists in 2016, the Australians are hungry to win the title in Paris after watching New Zealand succeed at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and the Japanese and Canadian legs of the world series that have followed.
"We've lost three in a row to New Zealand so motivation is very high," Tonegato said.
