Online degrees offer an unprecedented and previously unthinkable level of flexibility for those looking to study any one of the diverse range of subjects on offer. This, combined with the significantly lower costs of an online course, make them perfect for those on the move. The vast majority will even allow you to update your address as you progress through your chosen course.
An increasing number of travelers are looking to make the most of their time and to ensure that their travel doesn’t come at the expense of putting career progress on hold. Studying while traveling also keeps you focused and encourages the kind of self-discipline that is useful in many different areas of life.

Courses for Everyone
Online courses were once a very niche thing and the few legitimate courses available offered only a narrow range of choices. Now, however, there are online counterparts to many of the traditional campus courses offered by leading universities from around the world. The diversity of offerings can even seem overwhelming at first, particularly for those who aren’t entirely sure what they want to do and have multiple areas of interest. Studying while traveling gives you the unique opportunity to visit locations relevant to your chosen area of study.

Supplement an Existing Degree
Those who are traveling after having already studied for a degree qualification should consider how they can best supplement their existing knowledge. For example, a BSN to DNP online degree allows a qualified nurse to pursue a full doctorate and therefore open up doors to more senior and higher salaried positions. A nurse practitioner doctorate degree is an internationally recognized and valuable degree that could easily open doors to rewarding volunteer or part-time work while traveling abroad.Another degree with international value and a fantastic first step in career progression is a master’s of business administration (MBA), which is seen as a top choice for entrepreneurs and upper management. The MBA looks at not only how to start and run a business but also the nature of the broader economic climate and how to understand the twists of turns of a constantly changing landscape.

Put Your Technology to Use
Now that most travelers have a smartphone and laptop with them when they travel, the opportunity for learning on the go has arisen. Most phone and tablets are capable of rendering full web pages in a way that is still usable on a smaller screen; other sites offer special mobile versions of their webpages. Of course, for an online degree, you will need internet access or a mobile data plan, with the abolition of roaming fees throughout the EU the whole area is now a fantastic place to study while traveling.
