An interested learner will get ample of options to choose from and if someone can get the online degree from a reputed university, it can do wonders to their career graph!
Nikita D’Souza, one of my friends from India, is an ambitious girl and for her, getting a degree from a UK university was the ultimate dream. We became friends five years back via an online social networking site and within a few months of regular chatting over the chat forums and telephone, we became quite good friends. As I am already in the education industry in UK, she used to ask me a lot about our education system and was also very keen on applying for a master’s degree from one of the topmost colleges in UK.
But only a few of us can actually live our dreams the way we want and Nikita wasn’t one of them for sure! Her financial condition wasn’t that sound and hence, moving abroad, that too in the UK, and taking a full-time master’s degree, along with lodging, wasn’t possible for her. So, while we were on phone one fine day, I told her about online learning and her life changed!
Me: Hi Nikita! How have you been? I was a bit busy lately so couldn’t catch up with you much! How are things at your end?
Nikita: Hi Regina! I am doing well. And my Bachelor’s results are out! I have done pretty well and now want to move forward with my studies and apply for a Master’s programme.
Me: That’s great Nik! I knew you would do well. So, where will you apply for your Master’s?
Nikita: I don’t know Regina but I want to be in UK. As I have told you already, it’s my dream to get a degree from UK. But as you know my financial constraints, I can never fulfil my dream!
Me: Hmmm. I know what you are talking about! But hey! Why don’t you try looking out for an online degree from UK? Here, most of the reputed Universities are now offering their courses through the online mode and a number of international learners are applying to the same!
Nikita: I know about online learning but I am not really sure of its worth you know! Do you think it will be as good as a regular one?
Me: If it wouldn’t have been good, I would have never advised you to go for this one! I am also in the education industry and I have already seen a lot of my friends, relatives and even students gaining so much from an online course! These courses are cheaper than the regular ones and are also the most updated with materials!
Nikita: Really Regina? Do you think I am eligible to apply for a MBA degree from UK?
Regina: Of course you are Nikita! Getting online university degree from a reputed UK university isn’t tough at all. Just research about the best one and apply for it! I am sure you will not have to dime a dozen and hence, you will get the degree at a much lesser price.
Nikita: Oh wow Regina! Thank you so much. I will look for it and will let you know as soon as I am done applying in one of the online MBA courses from UK. I am so very excited!
Me: Sure dear! All the best!
She soon informed me that she applied for an online MBA from a well-known UK university and today, she is working in one of the topmost management firms in India as a Business Head! She thanks me almost every single day that I advised her to take the course online. For me, an online degree from a reputed university isn’t only worth it but it actually polishes the skills of the learners and makes them do wonders in their work-front! So, are you ready to take up a course online?
