I agree with B2N2, not an issue to start modular training, do it slowly, step by step. The only time pressure you will have is when you have completed your ATPL exams, I can't recall exact rules on this now, I believe you have 18 months from completing your final ATPL exam to complete your IR.

Now there are ways to manipulate this time scale, by delaying 1 final ATPL exam with the number of takes allowed. (I would delay one of the easy one, the RT one. Check all the time limits and the time allowed between the different phases. Have a job, train part time, so you finish up with no debts when finish training. Save money for a TR, and in 5 - 7 years you will be fine.

Also enjoy the hour building period, no rush. If you time it good you can be lucky and get a FI job just around the upturn when it comes again.
