    What is an Online MSc?

    An MSc (Master of Science) is a master’s degree, usually dedicated to programmes in STEM and other subjects such as management. It provides specialised training and includes independent modules. To access an MSc, you must have an undergraduate diploma, such as a bachelor’s degree. Most MSc programmes are run by universities, but nowadays, many are available online, with the same level of recognition.

    An online MSc usually involves regular but sparse online classes with all participants. You will undertake the programme on your own, at your own pace. If you choose to pursue an online MSc, you will be able to organise your studies to fit around your schedule and you can choose to work wherever is the most convenient for you.

    In your personal time, you will study fundamental courses in a range of subjects related to your chosen specialisation. Online classes will be dedicated to answering questions, debating, reviewing content, etc. You will have to dedicate several hours per week of study time and group work.

    Why should you pursue an online Master of Science?

    Fit your studies around your schedule

    An online MSc fits into your schedule thanks to a fine blend of synchronous and asynchronous work. You can choose to study when you have the time and outside of working hours. It is the perfect solution for improving your skills without the negative impact an 18-month gap would have on your career.

    Choose a programme from any school

    If you choose an in-person programme, you will be limited to schools that are within a reasonable distance from your home. If you choose an online MSc, there is no such limitation. You can choose the programme that suits your ambitions in any city and at any institution. If you want to boost your career with an international diploma, you can even join a top school in another country!

    Enjoy a high level of recognition

    You may be wondering whether your online diploma will have less recognition, but in fact, an online MSc enjoys the same level of recognition as its in-person counterpart. As such, you will benefit from the same opportunities after you graduate.

    Meet professionals from all over the world

    As previously mentioned, such Master of Science degrees involve online classes with all participants. This is the perfect opportunity to meet professionals from all over the world, with very diverse backgrounds. To advance your career, you need to build a wide network that will open up new opportunities. Take the time to talk to other students and make new connections.

    Opt for an affordable programme

    One key advantage of online MScs is that they are more affordable than their in-person counterparts, for the same level of recognition. You will not have to pay for travel or to commute daily to go to class and there will be no hotel or restaurant to book in a city that’s more expensive than yours…
