Study From Home advantage: No travel time!Posted on 04/03/2020 by Jess O'Connor
Welcome to a new feature on the blog dedicated to the advantages of Studying From Home with ITC. Every month, we will feature one big advantage of distance learning.
Everyone knows that a 30-minute bus ride is not really 30 minutes.
There’s the time you spend getting to the bus stop, waiting at the bus stop, and of course when the bus inevitably gets delayed or stuck in traffic.
What was meant to be a simple journey can take hours out of your precious day.
The same can be said of all public transport, as well as driving your own car. Everything takes longer than you think!
And then there’s the cost of public transport, not to mention petrol and parking.
Travelling to and from a classroom can cost both time and money.
For many students, it’s absolutely worth the investment. Being in a classroom environment is a great way to learn and it’s often worth the (relatively small) expense of getting there.
However, for some students, the cost of travelling to and from class can be the difference in studying and not studying at all.
If you live far away from campus, are on a tight budget, or have other responsibilities to consider (for example, children or a part-time job), then travelling for your studies might not be a realistic option.
The solution, of course, is to consider studying from home.
Studying tourism via distance learning with ITC is a way to instantly say goodbye to all travel time!
Instead of spending time on a bus, train, in your car or walking, you can use all of that time to get ahead on your studies.
Of course, the benefits of no travel time go far beyond extra time. When you don’t have to travel between your home and classroom, you can study whenever suits you – be that 8 am in the morning or 8 pm at night.
You can also study in less traditional chunks of time. For example, you could do 30 minutes in the morning while you drink a cup of coffee, then you could do the school run (if you have kids) and come back and pick up where you left off. This kind of flexibility simply isn’t available if your schedule revolves around bus timetables and classroom opening times.
Plus, it’s really awesome to be able to study a few steps away from your fridge and pantry – and just a few steps away from your bed for those late night study sessions.
