“I’ve studied a mix of both online and on-campus – when I was not working, I definitely enrolled in face to face classes, as I enjoyed the experience of learning and bonding with a small group of peers. As my life has gotten a little busier, I’ve moved to more online classes, as this allows a flexibility andcuts my commute into the campus. Both study modes have their benefits and their downfalls, and you just have to experiment, explore and find what works best for you.
