Could an online postgraduate course be right for you?

Extracts below:

While traditional campus-based courses remain the most popular, there is an increasing interest in online study, with its flexibility and easy access. 

Why study online?

  • Online courses provide opportunities to learn and engage with people from different backgrounds and experiences.
  • You can study anywhere in the world, provided you have access to the internet and a computer. 
  • Consider testing the waters beforehand by doing a free MOOC (massive open online course).
  • Online postgraduate degrees should provide the same standard of teaching as a “campus” degree.
  • If you have a family or are working, self-discipline is essential, so set easy, manageable goals.
  • Keep notes, otherwise, you’ll find yourself continually returning to the online platform.
  • Many courses can be extended over several years if students require extra time to complete the postgraduate course. 
  • Consider asking your employer to finance the course, as it may well benefit them as well as you.
