The past few weeks have been challenging and chaotic for many people. Because of government restrictions put in place to stop the spread of coronavirus, a lot of us have found ourselves at home with significantly more free time on our hands. This extra time at home presents the perfect opportunity to improve yourself and take on a new challenge. What better way to do that than to learn something new and study online? You’ll be able to learn new skills and keep yourself occupied all from the comfort of your own home.
Here are just five of many great reasons why you should start studying online today!
1. KEEP YOUR BRAIN ACTIVE
There’s a good chance that, like many others, you’ve recently been spending a lot of time isolated at home instead of at work or socializing with friends. This means that your brain is missing out on valuable “exercise” it needs to stay healthy. Learning is something new is one of the best ways to keep your brain happy and working at its best. Make the most of your new-found spare time and make that brain of yours work hard!
2. STUDY AT YOUR OWN PACE AND TIME
Online study gives you the flexibility to learn when, where, and how it suits you. Whether you’re isolated at home looking for something to keep you occupied or busy working or caring for loved ones, you’ll be able to find the time to learn. With no deadlines or assignments, there’s no pressure to stick to a set schedule – take as long as you need to get the most out of your education.
3. WIDE RANGE OF COURSES TO CHOOSE FROM
If you study online, you’ll have access to a much broader range of courses than at a traditional in-person class. You’ll find courses on everything from agriculture to zoology, and everything in between. No matter what you want to learn, we guarantee there’s a course out there for you!
4. SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS
Studying a certificate course with an online education provider is significantly cheaper than taking a course at a training organisation or university. Not only are the course fees much cheaper, but you also won’t need to pay hefty administration fees or purchase expensive textbooks. This means you’ll have more money to spend on the essentials.
5. IMPROVE ON YOUR PROFESSIONAL PROSPECTS
The job market is particularly difficult to navigate right now. Many people are out of work or have had their hours dramatically reduced. If you’re job hunting, set yourself apart from other applicants by adding qualification(s) to your resume. Employers will be impressed by your determination and desire to learn new things, even if they aren’t directly related to your field of work. This “extra” on your resume might just be what secures your next job. For some more helpful tips for job seekers, have a read of our blog on Writing a stand-out resume.
