Posted on 15-05-2012

Don’t you think that education should be imparted in such a manner that can encourage one to know and learn more and more with the passage of time? Do you think that a blackboard, a few chalks and some fat books can help you pursue your career goals with ease? In today’s world, the two words ‘convenience’ and ‘independence’ have earned huge significance among career aspirants in different corners of the world.

Researchers say that students now prefer to pursue higher studies from abroad rather than doing the same from their home towns to bring a shine in their career standards.

Career aspirants today get restless to earn degrees from UK learning institutions for alluring recognised employers. However, research work is a must when it comes to choosing an accredited institution.

In most of the primary schools, teachers make use of electronic whiteboards to explain lessons.

    I too like that there's no deadlines. Although, sometime it's good to have them, I'm generally studying for pleasure so prefer to have more freedom.

    The good thing about studying with Stonebridge is that it's flexible, no pressure or stress or deadlines! So you can study at peace while you're working for example.

    Usefull blog and encourages one to get thinking! A degree etc is all very well but without any "real" experience in the working world would an individual make the most of any knowlegde/skills gained? We are all different but in my honest opinion you need to strike a balance. For sure relevant work experience in your chosen field would be invaluable as one finishes university!!

    I love studying with Stonebridge, as there are no deadlines, and I'm able to work around my job earning money at the same time. The tutors are also really great and its easy to send in your work and you get great feedback.

    everyone likes independance, i think that more people go with distance learning because you can travel and do it with you and you can do it in your own time and pace! you can take it anywhere with you and i think more people prefer this

    I'm currently studying with the Open University and have been lucky to study a wide range of subjects as in the blog post. But do feel that in part, the wide range of subjects can devalue qualifications. However, it's great to have the OU and Stonebridge to allow people to learn what they want; when they want.

    With distance learning you really need good self discipline. I prefer to be in a class room but it's cheaper to study online. The UK courses are cheaper as well compare to the US courses.

    I study online with the Open Universtiy for a BA in Humanities with History and Classical Studies but I much prefer the look of the Counselling courses with Elearn, If I took these with the OU I'd have deadlines to meet so I am much looking forward to being able to organise my studies around my lifestlye rather then the other way around!

    Distance Learning has meant that I have been able to carry on studying the things I am interested in even when travelling around for work and on holiday. It's fantastic!

    I was aware that you could study abroad via another well known UK provider, however the course prices are triple their UK price. Thanks to Elearn and Stonebridge learning abroad has become affordable. :)

    I am from the UK originally, but now live in Cyprus, which is brilliant, however the study options available to me here are limited, and expensive. I would highly recommend studying with Elearn, if you live outside the UK!
