Your education is a lifetime investment and like any other investment you’ll definitely want to make sure that you don’t end up being a victim of fraudulent activities in this sector. Conducting proper research on the university you are thinking of applying to for distant learning, is the first thing that should be done. Check if the course you’re opting for is accredited by any of the accreditation councils in India. The information brochure provided by the college would without fail mention the accreditation council, as colleges take pride in telling candidates what is it worth being called a product of something like that. Often it is best to check with an outside source or someone who has had the experience.
Distance education may not be the best shot for every student, but getting to know its advantages and disadvantages could help you decide if it is the right thing for you.
– Pursue job along with studies: A high percentage of students who opt for distance education are those who wish to get a higher degree without giving up their jobs. If you’re one of them, this could prove a boon for you, provided the university which gives you the degree is worth the money you decide to spend on your education.
– Money saving: Because you are not going to avail the lodging facilities or the infrastructure provided by the institute, you would not be charged for that. All you are required to spend is for the study material and the test registration fees. So, if you are looking for an economically viable option to acquire a degree, go for an authentic distant learning course.
– Learn, as you want to: If you are someone like me, who cannot learn unless being made to in a regular schedule, you should probably consider dropping the idea of distant learning. The prospect of going back to classroom education can be intimidating for many of us. If you are self-motivated and self disciplined, nothing could be better than distant learning. People learn in different ways. There’s where distant learning might prove beneficial for you.
The eligibility for a distant learning course is nothing different from onsite learning. You need to have a HSC pass certificate to get yourself enrolled for a Bachelor’s degree, and a Bachelor’s degree in suitable stream or as demanded by the criteria for a Master’s degree.
The other day I came across someone who was quite confused about pursuing MBA from a university via distant education. When asked, she said she was confused regarding the worth of a distant education degree. Time and again, there have been instances where cases of fraudulence have been registered against a number of universities.
There’s a flip side to every story. Before you decide to step up and give in your details to the university, make sure that there are no hidden costs for your degree and that it has some, if not much, recognition among good brands. As long as your course or program is accredited, you need not be worried.
Distant learning is an easy to learn process if you know what you want. So knowing every single detail about your course and university is important before you start with anything else. Once you are thorough with things, you’re good to go and rock the world.
