Online Study?

    I'm confused!
    I'm eager to start a degree but I am completely in the dark about whether Online study would be as good as "brick study" where I go to campus daily.
    I dropped out of uni before because I didn't enjoy the atmosphere of the students, I couldn't afford travel or life, for that matter!
    I was looking at Kingston Uni, London, where they involve new students, provide a free language programme (which I'm interested in), and provide the opportunity to go abroad on placement in Year 2 or 3.
    I won't get that experience from online study... but I don't want to experience the negative atmosphere I had previously. Would I also get necessary benefits to help my study if I were an online student? I'm entitled to Parents Learning Allowance - would I receive that as well?

    I'm very torn - someone please help!
