The internet is one of the best inventions ever, I can’t go a day without going online. I’m currently phone-less after Archie pee’d on my iPhone & killed it and I’m struggling not scrolling through Twitter & Facebook daily but I’ll have a new phone very soon.
Anyway, back to the internet. Best. Invention. Ever. It’s enabled us to do so much more, see so much more, be so much more. Pretty much everything is easier online, including studying.
I’m currently working on a Creative Writing course through NCC Home Learning and am loving the fact that I can study online. It fits so well with us as a family and for so many reasons an online course could be perfect for you.
1. THERE’S SO MANY COURSES TO CHOOSE FROM
The courses at NCC range from teaching to beauty, science to wedding planning. There’s so many to choose from whether you want to further your career like me, or even if you want to completely change direction.
2. PERFECT TIMING
The way my course is structured means that I can study when it suits me. If I’ve got a free afternoon or evening I can work my way through a whole module, if I’ve only got an hour then I can grab a brew & just complete a couple of exercises instead.
3. THE RIGHT BALANCE
When I was a single mum at Uni it was hard. I had major mum guilt for leaving Brandon with my mum whilst I went to lectures but at the same time I knew that getting my degree would be the best thing for us. This time around I can study around the kids and fit it in with our family life.
4. YOU CAN STUDY ANYWHERE
Again, thank you internet. By studying online you can study anywhere. I love that I can take an hour to pop out to Starbucks, grab a coffee & slice of cake and study in peace or grab the laptop in the evening when the hubby is watching golf.
5. YOU CAN STUDY AT YOUR OWN PACE
This one is one of the most important factors for me. There’s no pressure to complete the course in a set time frame, you can go as fast or as slow as you need. If I’ve got a busy week with Archie’s medical appointments or therapy then I can take it a little slower or have a break altogether. Other week’s I’m able to work a little faster through my modules without any pressure to catch up.
I’m really enjoying my course and so glad I decided to go for the Creative Writing. What sort of course would you love to do?
