    A bit of background: I'm studying primary/elementary teaching at university. I'm halfway through my course.

    Based on family circumstances and issues with anxiety, I've been really interested in transferring to study online. I am self motivated and organised, so online study would work for me.

    I would still get the experiences of having placements within schools. I just won't be at physical classes.

    What is your opinion on studying online? Would it hurt my employment opportunities? Do you think I would be as "qualified" or skilled as someone who studied at a physical campus?

    I haven't made a decision, but I'll take everyone's points into consideration.

    Thanks! :-)

    Im doing Politics and International Relations from UoL and im loving it. I work full time but I miss being in "school", studying and doing exams. I dont feel the quality is inferior to normal school.

    to be honest i looked at an online course for my GG but there were some perks to doing it at a campus
    1. it's SoCal so i just open my mouth and boom i can pick up girls in a bar with zero effort
    2. a year of sunshine and a nice car to drive around in as well
    3. it's an area i want to scope out for business opportunities and a holiday home at some point
    what more do i have to say ok it ike £130,000 compared to like £40,000 if i do it online but well the perks are good enough
