    Is it possible to get a Master’s degree online? Is it recognized? I heard about some scams and I am a little worried. Where is a good place to do this?


    Yes, of course you can do this online and of course it is recognized. I did this myself through Western University (Faculty of Education). You should contact them. It is a good university and there is no need to worry.

    I think I know what you mean. You are talking about that CBC programme where people got fake degrees and set up an office to work as a therapist or something?


    Yes! So you saw that too eh? Marketplace was the programme, I think. People were getting diplomas by paying over a thousand dollars or something. I didn’t want to apply to some devious website like that.


    Like I said, don’t worry. I mean, feel free to ask around, but UWO is a legitimate university and a very good one, I might add. You can do this online and get your Master’s degree. In fact, there are several advantages to doing this online.

    You can learn from the comfort of your home. You don’t have to travel to and fro, which can be time-consuming. It can also be quite tiring, especially if you have a long commute. Even if you live in a different province or country, being online makes it so convenient.


    Yes, you can do a degree online. In fact, I believe an online course is always more affordable. Let’s face it, when you go to university, it is really expensive. So, imagine the ability to do this for less. It is cheaper because there aren’t as many overhead costs. You get lower tuition fees.


    Take your time and look around for something that suits your budget. Some people don’t go to university because of the expenses. This way, you can get a university education, gain your Master’s degree and save some money.


    You can do your online degree while working. You can do it part-time if that fits in with your schedule. You are basically in control, so you do not have to give up your job. It will be hard, but it can also be done.

    Check your employment to see if you have some benefits where you can get tuition reimbursements to further save on costs.


    I used to work in the week and studied in the weekend. You don’t really have to take time off from work. It takes a little getting used to, but you will get there in the end.


    Oh yeah, many people do their studies online. In fact, when it is online, it can be more accessible. Sometimes, a student may want to do a particular course but their first choice university may not offer it. So, they end up going to another university further away.

    This way, they don’t have to worry. I think more choices are offered online, so why not take advantage of it? No need to uproot oneself.
