The lure of foreign university is waning?

It seems so because of the increasing number of online education institutions that announce their presence to the students’ world.

Students are also wise enough to recognize the several advantages of e-learning that reduces their expenses in travel, food, study materials and high tuition fees that are usually associated with conventional form of education.

The time flexibility is another major factor that weighs in favor of virtual learning.

Moreover, internet communication has many facilities like audio chatting, web cam and discussion boards that make interaction between students and tutors very easy.

Speaking of online universities, I thought I can mention here about Capella University that offers graduate and post graduate degree programs in business, information technology, education, human services, and psychology; in all 76 graduate and undergraduate specializations and 16 certificate specializations.

16,000 students from all 50 states and 63 countries are at present enrolled with Capella.

The cheerful news to international students is that, it is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
