If you've never studied online, it's hard to know what to expect. Isolation? Nobody to ask for help when stuck? What might surprise you about online study, is that many students feel surrounded by people and resources during their experience. Once they get comfortable with the online format, they find that it’s easy to connect and collaborate with tutors, lecturers and peers, as they would in real life.

When you think about it, so many of our interactions take place online, whether casually on social media, or formally through work. Studying online feels more natural than you'd think. In a workplace, you’ll connect with people outside your organisation primarily over the internet, and even your in-office colleagues will have conversations via email – not (solely) out of laziness, but in order to keep track of information, and loop in large groups of people. It's great practice for when you're out in your chosen field of work – you'll already be technologically ahead of your on-campus peers.
