I enjoyed studying online as it allowed me to gain fantastic work experience that other students I know wouldn’t have been able to obtain. By working and studying full time, I fast tracked my career and learned the importance of time management and self discipline. The only criticism I would have is that teachers often don’t respond and it can be a little frustrating trying to navigate the online forums. Also, lectures are less frequent (compared to the time I spent studying at the University of Wollongong).
