What is an Online Course?

Online courses are a breakthrough in today’s hectic lifestyle and global situation. People with diverse professions can now pursue a qualification in the comfort of their own home. They are designed for individuals who are occupied with commitments elsewhere and are looking to gain qualifications to progress in their careers. This eliminates the need for physical presence in a class.

All the necessary information is stored online and is available 24/7, allowing you the freedom to complete the course at your own pace and in your own time. This is a form of distance learning in which learning outcomes are achieved mostly through submitting coursework via the official website. An award, degree, or certificate is received upon the successful completion of a course.

Why do online courses?

Current global situation has forced institutions to look for alternative methods of teaching. This is a great opportunity for people living in distant areas to enroll in a prestigious institution without the inconvenience of daily commute or burden of finding a residency or relocating.

Consequently, online education, which incorporates several advantages of immersive/personalized face-to-face learning along with the benefit of immediate live access to high quality study resources electronically, is becoming very popular during this challenging era. This new mode of study, which is radically developing, offers students greater flexibility and convenience while pursuing a degree.

Students can now easily attend lectures and assessments while working full-time. One has the facility to transfer the credits you gain through online study, towards a traditional face-to-face university or college course, thus saving money on additional tuition fees.

Will an online course enhance my career?

Since an online course is relatively more affordable and almost always available, many students see this as a convenient option. Studying the right course can help you expand in your existing career and create greater opportunities for you in the future. Some institutions offer work placements for those who achieve outstanding scores.

Who would benefit from online courses?
  • Students who have just completed their secondary education (GCSEs OR grade 12 OR Equivalent): complete a degree in a short period of time rather than pursuing the traditional three-years bachelor’s degree.
  • Students wishing to pursue university-level education abroad: exemption from IELTS or other English requirements to support their case when pursuing studies abroad.
  • Executive-level professionals, businessmen and government officials who have not completed a degree: may boost their career through an online course.
  • Those who wish to migrate to other countries: the UK, USA and Canada give extra points to students who have a UK-based degree.
Other key benefits of online course?
  • Degree is equivalent to an on-campus university degree.
  • Degrees awarded are recognized worldwide (awarding body: Anglia Ruskin University).
  • Bachelor’s and Master’s Courses are duly accredited by the British government. 
  • Employers view online degrees and traditional lecture theatre-based degrees equal.
  • Transcript or Certificate will NOT typically mention that individual was an “online” student (see link to a sample transcript and certificate below).
  • All modules are 100% assignment-based: no need to attend any lectures in-person or take any exams; simply submit assignments before the given deadline.
  • IELTS test or English Test Exemption: A British degree exempts you from the English requirements that many countries have for international students or immigrants. 
  • British Degree: will allow you to score extra points for Migration purposes.
  • It will save you TIME and MONEY!

Upon completion of their online degree, students will be able to attend their Graduation Ceremony in the UK. The UKVI allows students coming to attend their graduation ceremonies up to 6 months of stay on a visit visa.

What our Students Say

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
