Suzannah commented on Equal Advantage for All.

Hi Michael,
The costs are low because universities are funded and regulated by the Government. Although this is due to change soon with the latest budget.

This is an interesting article I found about the changes:

Suzannah commented on The Trouble with Online College

Depending on the institution that is providing the course, obtaining a degree from an online university can dilute the purpose of university, a degree and the hard work. Some courses can be good, don't get me wrong, but others can be a quick and easy way to get your name on a piece of paper. One of the most important parts of university is the face time with teachers to learn, gain first hand information, share, collaborate and build networks. I always see advertisements for a one year MBA programs done online in your spare time and when it suits you, but how does this compare to the MBA program I am doing at a university?! Does sitting in front of a computer really teach you how to manage people, communicate and build your knowledge!?
