Studying Online

What is studying online?

It’s been a long time since ‘education’ only meant ‘sitting in a classroom or lecture theatre in front of a teacher’. Thanks to technology, you can be thousands of kilometres away from your teacher. You can switch from video lectures to text to multimedia demos in seconds. And you can still get in touch with your trainers and other students when you need.

Choosing to study online is now mainstream. It’s popular with people who don’t have time for old-school education. You can learn when you like, where you like, and at your own pace. No more blocking out hours out of your schedule. Take it one step at a time – or five minutes, as the case may be.

Why study online?

Studying online is a rich experience. Think of it as beyond classroom learning. You’ll get direct access to your trainer, and handy reference texts, including PDFs. But you’ll also get heaps of resources that enhance your experience. Like videos, demo templates, multimedia presentations, webinars, and interactive content.

You’ll have access to our online learning management platform. On top of the course content, the platform contains all the assessments that you’ll complete and submit online.

Aside from this there’s plently of reasons why studying online might work for you:

  1. Competitive edge in job market In any stage of life, breaking into a new industry can be intimidating due to stiff competition for jobs. Having a diploma or any type of qualification enhances your resume, making it more likely to catch the attention of recruiters who often prioritise educational qualifications.  Whether you’re just starting out or aiming to progress, acquiring relevant qualifications significantly boosts your chances of securing your desired job.
  2. Knowledge acquisition Continuous learning expands your expertise, making you more effective in your role. Despite challenges, the satisfaction gained from accumulating knowledge is immense. Increased expertise breeds confidence, which in turn enhances job performance and satisfaction.
  3. Demonstrates commitment Studying is no walk in the park, it requires dedication and perseverance, often presenting challenges like time management and comprehension hurdles. However, persisting through difficulties demonstrates commitment, showcasing to recruiters not only your skills but also your dedication to the industry. This commitment sets you apart from others in the job market.
  4. Networking opportunities Studying online provides opportunities to connect with individuals who share your career interests, regardless of geographical boundaries. Building relationships with like-minded peers facilitates mutual support in assignments and concept comprehension. These connections not only combat feelings of isolation in online study but also hold potential for future career networking and opportunities.
  5. Gain practical experience Studying for an additional qualification will arm you with knowledge and it can also expose you to real life experience. Having experience won’t just jazz up your resume, it will also give you confidence walking into your new job.
  6. Flexible study options For years if you didn’t live near an educational facility or moved closer to one, it was almost impossible to complete a tertiary qualification. Thankfully, due to the internet and modern technology, those days are over. You can now study from anywhere in Australia online.

Even if you do live near an education facility, you can still study from home. Lectures are now video recorded, and classes are made available over video calls.

So, if you live far away, don’t have a mode of transport, work and/or are a busy parent, the process of gaining a qualification is now a whole lot easier… logistically. 7. Convenient class scheduling That’s right… Because you can study online, you can also choose when you study. No requirements to show up for classes on time.

Lectures are video recorded and posted online for you to view when the time suits you. Meaning you don’t have to change your hours at work or get someone to look after your kids while you go to class. Studying online allows you to do all things you want and factor in your education around your life. Not the other way around. 8. Future planning Do you dream of climbing the corporate ladder? Maybe you aspire to launch your own business one day? Start studying now and plan for your future.

Getting your qualification is just a stepping stone to reaching your dream job. It’s time to take the leap and plan your pathway to making your dreams a reality. 9. Sense of accomplishment Ticking off assignments and completing exams and seeing you’re the results of your hard work, brings a great sense of achievement. You may even surprise yourself with how well you do. Just remember you get out what you put in. So, if you put in the work and effort, it will come back to you in your grades, giving you an amazing feeling of satisfaction and pride. 10. Work in the job you’ve dreamed of The sooner you get started on your studies, the closer you are to accomplishing your dreams. And the longer you wait, the longer it will take you. So, why wait?

It’s time to start thinking of all the reasons why you can study instead of thinking of all the reasons you can’t.
