    Uphill with studying

    Is it possible to use the idiom "uphill" when describing the process of studying? We may say: "He studies hard." We may not say:"He studies uphill", but how may we say? Does the name of a project "English Uphill" sound strange to a native speaker?

    #1 In the form : "He had an uphill struggle to study properly".

    #2 Yes, very odd.
