School leaver’s guide…finding an accredited online university.

2019 was a very busy and a fast paced year.

If you are one of the happy learners that have successfully graduated from secondary level and now looking forward to the next stage of education, you’re probably still wondering…what comes next.

There is one thing that we are all keen in doing after secondary level, and when we do that we would have opened ways to excel and become role models of the next generation.

Whether being an applicant at an organization that you have always wished to work at or probably starting your company somewhere.

So many ideas have probably come across your mind and one of those are; where am I going to study and how am I going to pay for those studies…?

Have you probably thought about online studies? Do you have an idea of how online studies work? Have you searched reliable online universities that offer what you want to study? Yes, there are so many things we need to consider and research about especially when money is considered. There are so many advantages and disadvantages when it comes to paying an online university that claims it has the right accreditations only to find out that you have been scammed.

With BU, there is a vast list of programs that may best be suitable for you to study with – http://bit.ly/OnlineBUProgrammes. Not only is it online but there are physical campuses in the four different countries, http://bit.ly/OnlineUniversityBotho.

Here is a short guideline to checking if an online education provider is actually reliable.

  1. Check the accreditation of online degrees.

This is basically one of the first things to do before you consider putting your personal bank details and verifying it with any online organization. Check if the program has been reviewed by its peers and that it is validated and verified or probably just visit your local Education Department and see if it does exist.

  • Avoid Universities that copy well established institutions.

One of the scariest things to come across is finding out that you have paid an institution – with the perfect impression that it is probably a well-established university and to later regret the fact that it wasn’t. Make thorough research, also make sure that if it is a copied reliable institute that you Google the physical campus and correct it with them before paying a deposit.

  • Beware of too good to be true admission criteria.

There are some fake online universities that would probably sell you what you want to buy. They sympathize with your situations and therefore going beyond in delegating on how you can afford beyond the actual cost. Beware of them, especially if they seem to be greedy when they want to assist you.

  • Don’t pay the institutions upfront.

Have you heard of the famous quote; “there is limited spaces available.” This is what we call emotional blackmail. Universities are quite familiar with this quote therefore, they know that you are more desperate to get ready and pay regardless of what you initially wanted to do at first.

This is how they end up reaching their target or probably exceeding by just a bit.

If the institution is requesting an upfront large payment, than probably it may be a scam.

Usually online institutions require you to pay in installments rather than upfront, which also is optional for you.

  • Be skeptical of earning a degree way too easily.

There are definitely scammers that know how to sell their services. That also making you eagerly interested in wanting to quickly pay for it.

Be careful about the courses that take you very little time to complete your course, instead of the usual time frame.

Last and foremost….

  • Verify university contact details.

It is extremely important for you to check and verify the institutions details. Every university should be accredited with the designated Department of Education from its country. Taking every detail into consideration is a priority.
