What are the benefits of online study?
The key benefit of online study is being able to study when you want, where you want
. As all course materials are delivered through an online learning platform, you aren’t required to travel to a physical location to learn, saving time and money.
With online learning, you can create your own study schedule
rather than having to work to a set timetable. This is great for anyone balancing other work, personal and family commitments, or anyone who works better absorbing content at their own pace.
Online study also gives you the choice of pursuing alternative study methods
which may suit your learning style better. For example, perhaps you learn better independently, rather than in a crowded classroom setting. Or perhaps the flexibility of working through content at your own pace allows you to retain information and skills better.
Upskill in the field of your choice and learn at a schedule and pace that suits you best, all from the comfort of your own home.
Is online study better than in-class learning?
Whether you choose to study online or in a traditional classroom setting should depend on your time, budget, location and learning preferences.
Online learning has a range of benefits, including:
- Study anytime, anywhere - you’re free to take your study materials anywhere, allocate your study hours around your work schedule, and are not required to travel to a physical campus.
- Study at your own pace - you have the opportunity to work when you're most productive, and can establish your own study schedule. You also have access to online student support should any issues arise.
- Balance priorities - you have the opportunity to gain qualifications and work-ready skills while maintaining your other commitments. Many students remain in employment while reaching their learning goals.
