Articles > 5 Reasons Why You Should Do an Online Degree
Location
 
Online degrees are accessible to everyone and everywhere. Therefore, if you are in a remote rural village in Africa or a city, which doesn’t have a university, you can still get your degree. So long as you have a computer and Internet access- your physical location is not a concern. You just tumble out of bed and walk a few meters to your computer and you're in class. 
 
Time 
 
You can get a degree online even if your time is very limited; if you have a hectic schedule, a family, and a busy work or social life, this will probably be the best solution for you. Your study hours can be personalized to suit your schedule. You'll never be late for class as you determine the hours you study. Fit in an hour before work, an hour after work, study during vacation, on the road or in your lunch break. 
 
Money
 
Online degrees aren't free but they are definitely more economical than a regular degree if you take into account all aspects of campus study. With an online degree there is no cost of campus accommodation, gas and vehicle expenses to get to school or endless textbooks. The study materials are predominantly online. You get the same education as a conventional degree but at half the price. Employees are often willing to finance online studies as they gain employees that are constantly improving their skills while working full time.
 
Variety and Choice
 
Today the choice of online degrees is endless. The list of available online degrees is constantly growing in response to the demands of our modern busy lifestyle. You can earn diplomas, associate degrees, bachelor degrees and even masters degrees online. The extensive list includes political science, marketing, business administration, economics, history, English, math, nursing, psychology, philosophy, education, retail management, IT, computers, languages, engineering, technology, design, environmental studies, criminology, social work, law, social studies, forensic psychology, cyber security and more. 
 
Completion Time
 
With online degrees you can pace yourself according to your own independent learning style. So long as you are within the course framework you can progress at your own speed. Online courses are generally achieved faster than traditional degrees. The faster you earn your degree the sooner you'll be out in the market place earning a living. Unlike brick-and-mortar institutions you don't have to take spring break or a summer vacation hiatus. When studying online you can study continuously year-round. A typical traditional degree takes about 4 years to earn. Online you could achieve your goal within about 3 years.
 
An online degree from an accredited university is just as valuable as a traditional degree but more flexible and tailored to your lifestyle.
