The world of study has changed a great deal over the past few decades. A higher level of formal education is required these days and employees are expected to update their skills and qualifications more often than in the past. These days many courses are available online as well as face to face. Some courses use a combination of methods. Each type of study has its advantages and disadvantages.

When I left high school most further education was done in a face to face setting. There were a few course available by 'correspondence' but not many.

The internet has made it possible for people to study a wide range of subjects online. People can enrol to do an overseas course if they wish.

It is important to check an overseas qualification is valid for employment purposes where you live before enrolling.

As well as diplomas and degrees, there are short courses available. Some are available for qualifications which need regular updating and can be very convenient. Some involve a fee and others are free. These courses allow people to avoid having to take time off work, travel distances or arrange babysitting.

Online study suits people who are employed and would have difficulty getting time off to attend classes. People who concentrate best on their own learn well using online courses. There are students with issues such as social anxiety who may be more comfortable studying from home. Also, people who have health issues which would prevent them attending classes on a regular basis can do an online course at the times when their health allows.

Some colleges combine online and face to face studies. Students may be able to come in to the college for some workshops to supplement their online studies. Some places have tutors available to work one on one with students as needed.

Online courses don't suit everyone. Each person has their own style of learning.

Some people learn better in a face to face environment. Being able to talk to other students and ask questions of the lecturer is more appropriate for some. The social side of studying this way is also lots of fun. read more

These days lectures in a face to face setting usually include a PowerPoint style presentation. Sometimes a lecture is presented from another campus using modern technology. Students sit together in a lecture room and see their lecturer on a screen as he/she presents the lecture from a location which could be hundreds of kilometres away.

Further education is readily available these days, at any stage of your life, not just straight after finishing secondary school.

Hi Marie,
Reading your article reignited the interest I have had in studying psychology - certainly the option for doing the degree online has made this more palatable. Thank you for your article...it comprehensively outlined all the ways study is possible.

All the best with your studies, should you decide to go ahead. I did a couple of semesters of psychology as part of Social Work studies and found it fascinating. As that was over ten years ago, some of what I studied back then is probably already out of date.
