Why Study Online?

The ecosystem of education is transforming into online learning opportunities. But what are actually the advantages of studying online?

Anytime, anywhere

You can follow online courses from wherever you are, whenever you want to. The only requirement is that you need a working internet connection. You are very flexible, which means that you can combine studying with your professional career.

You are not alone

Although studying online might seem very lonely, this is not the case. You are part of an online learning community with people of all ages, from all over the world. On a virtual learning platform, you meet your fellow students through online group work, forum discussions or peer reviews. 

Advance your career

The flexibility of online learning provides you with the opportunity to give your career an extra boost. You can explore new subjects or deepen your knowledge in your field of expertise without going back to the university. Online learning offers you the chance to learn the rest of your life.

Earn a degree, credits or diploma

Most of the online study programmes provide you with a diploma if you pass the entire programme. With the online masters of Wageningen University & Research you can attain a fully recognised MSc degree; in the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) of Wageningen University & Research, you have the possibility to upgrade to a Verified Certificate; and if you complete the entire programme of the MicroMasters Biobased Sciences for Sustainability you get a diploma worth 24 ECTS.
