choose between online degree or full/part time school for postgraduate or graduate study?

By | November 11, 2015

i’ve been working for 2 years now, graduated 3 years ago, in practice my current diploma isn’t enough for me to get a better development for work. so i am thinking to continue study in the most time and cost effective way.

since i am already out of school, could imagine would be quite hard go back to school sit there do a few years full time, plus there is tuition, energy etc.. not sure how valuable the online degree is, i know in China a proper full time unviersity degree is the best, what about get it online through a well-known school?

i also want to change industry, so would need to choose a different major. also want to study overseas if it’s not because of finanical issues, or maybe study online from a world well-known school? any suggestions?

    i don’t trust online degrees or think they’re worth much. i don’t even like online classes from regular schools. i’m taking my 1st online class and have 2 regular classes. maybe the online class won’t be bad. as long as i get a good grade who cares i’ll try to take all my other classes on campus. i need to be able to ask a teacher questions and expect to learn something. I also figure if i’m doing “learning modules” on line why am i paying them money. I should be getting a discount as they just have any number of people download the thing and do some exercises. i’m paying $3000 USD per course.

    My best recommendation would be to contact a number of colleges to find the best fit for you and your needs (tuition, schedule, career opportunities, etc.). Too often people enroll in the first school they find rather than taking the time to find the best school for them. Taking that time now could save you a lot of time, money and frustration if you choose the wrong school.
    This site has some good info on regionally accredited online degrees and some colleges that offer them to help expand your search:
    I think you can enter your info on there for any colleges you are interested in and they will send you more info for free. Good Luck!

    A lot of well known and respected Universities have established distance learning programs. Do a little research and see which Universities offer online programs for your area of study. You can also look into learning management systems. Courses developed on LMS are created by subject matter experts and commonly are accredited. Like most things you just have to do your research and make sure everything fits within your guidelines. Online education is extremely beneficial as it allows you to work full time and go to school full time by allowing you to complete courses on your own time. It makes getting your career going much easier. A resource for you to check out as an example of a comprehensive LMS is: They have courses spanning many areas of study.
