Studying in The Netherlands

Studying in The Netherlands is cool especially if it is under a scholarship program. But even at that, some students still prefer online master’s degree to the traditional on-campus program. This may be due to the flexible learning options which online universities offers to its learners online. Enrolling for a degree program online seems to be the trend these days because online universities now give their learners the chance to decide when to study.

This flexibility in learning lets learners to balance their work life and academic life. Everyone enjoys being given the time to look into their personal issues and matters relating to them. Most students enrolled in a traditional on-campus degree program don’t often have the time for family, and barely think of doing other things due to the busy academic schedule hindering them from doing all these.

These days, online universities do not offer only undergraduate degree courses; they have extended their arms to also offer online master’s degree and even doctoral degree. With this wide range of degree being offered online, students who are interested in studying online can now earn almost all their degree without stepping their foot into a campus to take lectures or whatever.

But sometimes, the tuition of these online institutions are very high that one would even prefer to study in a traditional campus. Plus, studying in a traditional campus will give learners the opportunity to travel and experience a new learning environment entirely. Speaking of traditional campus learning, some students often apply for scholarships which will be used to sponsor their education and sometimes, even provide them with daily living allowances. One of such scholarships is the Maastricht University Master’s Scholarship.

The institution is accepting application from international students who are not from Europe nor EEA and wishes to earn their master’s degree in The Netherlands.

Getting funds for school fees and other fees attached to academics is not really easy for students. Speaking of scholarships, there are different scholarship providers who are willing to sponsor the education of students that has outstanding academic scores. Sponsors may be university, government, organization, or private sponsors.

Depending on who the sponsor is, it is worthy to note that different sponsors set the rules according to their desire but all fair when it comes to selection of scholars.

£5,000 International Excellence Scholarship Award in The UK 2018/2019

There are many accredited online universities today but spotting them out from the many online universities seems to be an issue for most students who wish to enroll for a distance learning program.

One of the many problems of enrolling in an online university is differentiating between accredited online universities and non-accredited ones. You may be wondering enrolling in a non-accredited online university affects your education. You will only know the negative effects when you graduates. How would you feel if employers should say your degree qualification is not valid? After going through the stress of studying, and also spending some bucks just to earn a university degree but just to find out that all this while, it has been nothing but a big joke? Bad right? That is why emphasis are always laid on applying to study in accredited online universities only whenever a student has determined to be distance learner in an online university.

After seeking and finding an accredited university, what comes up next is funding. Are you financially buoyant enough to fund your education till the very end? Are your parents/guidance able to sponsor your degree program till you graduates? If you are uncertain about it, it is very advisable to seek for scholarship at the very start of your degree program. You may still ask, “Why the start of my program? Why not wait till I get stuck and not able to pay my fees no more?” Well, most scholarship providers prefer to award their scholarships to freshmen in schools for reasons best known to them alone. Even at that, there are still scholarship programs that allows existing degree students to apply. But the question is “How lucky will you be in coming across such scholarship at your mid-degree level or almost ending degree program?”

Well, I will tell you of a scholarship open to both online and offline students but it is targeted at graduate students in only specific discipline.
