If you are working towards a promotion or perhaps thinking of changing career, then earning an online university qualification which proves that you are in touch with current thinking in your field may help you in your quest for a brighter future.

Here are four reasons why studying for an online degree makes sense for busy working professionals:

  1. Flexibility
    Well, of course studying online is flexible; it’s online. But have you thought about what that really means? No need to worry about what time the library closes, no missing the first twenty minutes of a lecture because of traffic, and no having to choose between spending time with your family and going to class. When you study online, university fits around your life, not the other way round.
  2. You’ll learn from students from around the world, every day
    An online classroom is always going to be so much more diverse than a campus classroom. For example, students from more than 140 countries study online with the University of Roehampton, London. Think about the fascinating discussions you can have with people from so many different backgrounds. Not only will you gain new world views, but you’ll benefit from their experience, and your classroom will become a resource for learning in its own right.
  3. You can build a global network
    Sometimes in life, it’s the people listed in your phone contacts who will give you advice, point you in the right direction or let you know about a job opportunity you might be interested in. Being an online learner means you are part of a community of like-minded people from all over the world whom you can talk to whenever you want. No need for a conversation icebreaker; you’ll already have so much in common.
  4. It’s all the same in the end
    If you had a choice, which would you prefer: doing your banking online or visiting a busy bank during limited opening hours where you have to queue for the same service? It’s the same with studying your masters degree online – you can earn the same quality masters education as a campus-based student, but from the comfort of your own home. And if you choose to earn your degree from a university that also has a physical campus, like the University of Roehampton, you’ll still have the opportunity to graduate on campus in London, and the fact that you studied online won’t even show on your degree certificate. So why make things harder for yourself?

Online universities such as the University of Roehampton, London Online believe that everyone should be able to access learning that has the power to improve their own lives and the lives of those around them. Join thousands of students enhancing their careers by studying their online masters degree through online learning.
