Scholarships for online courses is a blessing to many. It has made it relatively easy for students to obtain international education without quitting their jobs or going through the stringent visa application process. Of course, these processes are often accompanied by exorbitant travelling and relocation costs.
However, the cost of studying online for a degree program is more or less as that of an on-campus study, even with more difficulty in obtaining a study loan.
