Obtaining a Degree Onlineadmin on August 22, 2011 | 1 Comment »
It used to be that getting a degree was quite a rare thing, a great achievement. Nowadays due to increasing numbers of students encouraged to go to university, hundreds of people have graduated with degrees or equivalent qualifications, making the job market more competitive than ever.
For some people, the chance to study at university is simply not feasible, due to distance, financial issues or existing commitments. For many more the chance to study unfortunately passed them by, and many then feel that it is too late to go back and get those qualifications they may have missed the first time round.
However, a great many universities and other educational facilities across the UK have set up programmes to make the development of skills and attainment of qualifications more accessible to literally everyone. Everyone now has the chance to get a degree thanks to organisations like Kaplan Open Learning, any online university that provides flexible online courses leading to a full degree qualification.
This flexible mode of learning is becoming increasingly popular. Kaplan Open Learning itself is directly affiliated with the University of Essex, meaning that a degree obtained online at www.kaplanopenlearning.org.uk is exactly the same as a degree from that university.
You can study your degree course from the comfort and convenience of your own home, working at hours that suit you and choosing from a vast range of different subjects. Kaplan specialises in the areas of Business Management, Financial Services and Criminal Justice, with a variety of sub divisions to choose to specialise in should you wish to do so.
Although online learning won’t suit everyone, it makes degree qualifications more accessible to everyone, at a fraction of the cost of a traditional university education and with a greater degree of flexibility. You can even study online at Kaplan alongside an existing job, helping you to prepare to progress further in your career or even change your career path altogether.
