Distance learning education is trending today. Anything from undergraduate degree to a degree program can be acquired through this mode of instruction. You need not worry about how and where the next installment for your university tuition will come from.
With distance learning education all you have to do is pick your degree program, enroll and enjoy low-cost education which does not compromise with its quality. And is this not just great?
However, as this type of education continue to trend in the world, we have noticed that mainstream universities are continuously increasing their offerings. As a result, you will see an abundance of scholarships out there, some better than the rest.
Today we are focusing on the scholarship offered by the Canon Collins Trust Invites which invites you for its Postgraduate Diploma. There are more options with the Trust of course, and those include a Postgraduate Certificate or the Master of Laws, which is actually available as a distance learning program at the University of London starting next year.
It is an interesting trend that mainstream universities will be readily adopting elements of online education and vice versa. However, in the case of distance education, this mode of learning has been trending prior to the recent onslaught of online education as a whole.
The scholarships is quite beneficial. It includes tuition fees between one and five years if there is satisfactory academic progress. Nothing better than this really.
Let us get a tad more specific. What are the exact benefits of the scholarship?
- The applicants can start at any level and are not obliged to complete their program
