Surely one of the greatest benefits of the internet is education. As the mother and carer of a child with disabilities, I had a few local options to study, but nothing like the opportunities presented by TSD distance learning.
It has opened up a vast reservoir of possibilities for those like me who could never have hoped to access such speciality subjects before. I am an astrologer and wanted to study the history and contribution that the starry skies have made to the human story, so I enrolled to take the MA Cultural Astronomy and Astrology.
Initially, I felt woefully under skilled for such an undertaking, but I was supported and encouraged by the staff as I found my feet at the beginning of the course.
I made contact with the other students and now I have friends to share the journey with. The reading and writing can be fitted in around my clients and the course is well structured, so I know what to do and how to do it.
Everything we need is there on the computer, day or night, and this allows more time for studying. I feel proud of what I am achieving and I could never have attempted it without on-line teaching.
A brilliant way to learn!
