When thinking of education, the most common image that springs to mind is a classroom with a blackboard accompanied by a teacher. Students are disengaged and learning is a slow and tedious process. With the introduction of online platforms, more and more learning is now being done online with thousands of students migrating to a flexible way of learning. On average there now 5 devices or more per household that are connected to the internet and each one of these can be a valuable learning tool.
Why study online
There are many reasons as to why you would choose to study online rather than attend a classroom based course. Our top few are listed below.
Ease of access
Studying online allows you to access your material quickly and easily without having to pore through pages and pages of study material. Online schools now have apps that are easily accessible from a laptop, tablet or mobile device that fit easily into any backpack or hand bag. Browse through your material whilst waiting for the bus or making your train journey home.
Review multiple sources
A quick google search can compare one topic against numerous other sources allowing you to get an informed overview of the material. If your learning style is more visual and you prefer video, you can use YouTube or any other video sharing platform to learn from. The Online Business School provide an online tuition service that is included with their courses so you can speak to an expert at a click of a button. Traditionally you would have to wait until the following day or until the next time your lecturer would be available. With OBS, there’s no waiting around.
There are benefits and drawbacks to not having a class of 50-60 students studying in the classroom alongside you. The most obvious benefit is that you get to study at your own pace without being distracted by what is happening in the row in front of you or behind. The disadvantage however, is that you do not have someone to bounce your ideas off of for that latest assignment or exam that is approaching. That’s why the Online Business School also includes a student forum where students can log in and share ideas with other like-minded students. Students who have studied your course before you may have come across the same query you have and made use of the forum to answer their question. There’s no time wasted and you can return to your work immediately.
Study with the Online Business School and find a way that is right for you. Online learning has a world of potential and if used in the right way, can pave the way for a successful career powered by learning suited to you.

Lessons and tips for completing a degree online amid a successful career
To be able to successfully complete an online education and work at the same time takes determination. With the right frame of mind there’s no doubt it can be done.
Your first step to ensure you complete your degree will be to make sure you are organised. Organisation can be achieved by:
- Creating a timetable to prioritise your tasks
- Being realistic with the time that you set
- Making use of the reminder feature on your phone.
Creating a timetable to manage your tasks – this does not have to be an intensive task, you can even use the course layout of the modules to help you.
Being realistic with the time that you set – if you know you cannot concentrate for a full hour, break your study periods into smaller, manageable chunks.
Making use of the reminder feature – You know it’s there, but you’ve never used it. Schedule in a reminder for one or two evenings accompanied by your favourite sound.
With an online degree you have the benefit of being able to work from home and most importantly, at your own pace. There may be some days where you cannot fit any study time in at all. Fortunately, an online degree gives you the flexibility to catch up on your study during the weekend. Particular sections of your course may require more time, thought and persistence so you could use the longer weekends to tackle these.
Lack of motivation
With all the flexibility and ease of use that online learning offers, you may find that at certain times your motivation is low. Not having to physically attend a classroom and have a lesson taught by a teacher could lead to a lack of urgency. To ensure this does not occur, you will need a willingness to learn and strong motivation. With the right drive and motivation, a degree with the Online Business School can be completed whilst you are still in full time employment, all for less than £5000!
If you are working while studying, the sheer effort it takes to achieve an online degree will definitely increase your potential to your employer. Be clear and open with your boss about your aspirations. Many online schools now have apps that you could use so you could easily fit in study time at the start or end of the working day or even during your lunch.
Gain practical experience immediately
Working as part of your online degree puts you in a unique position. Material that you may have studied the night before can be put into practise the very next day. which makes a far more valuable and memorable learning technique than simply reading from a section of text.
With Online Business School you can achieve a degree for far less than what you would be paying if you attended a traditional university. Sure, your social life may not be as vibrant however the end result of completing a degree will be worth so much more.
