So.. I was thinking about doing an online course at university of essex, which is considered very good university in the UK. I know they are not a part of the Russell Group, but their university is still good and not that expensive, as it is only 18,000 for 4 years, that's only about 4,000 a year. My question is, are these degrees as good as those gained in full time education? I'd rather go for distance learning since its a bit cheaper, I could get myself a job and pay for the university with my own money.
What should I do?
