Definition of learning, with time has undergone a paradigm shift. Thanks, to the technological advancements and communication development, learning is no longer restricted to or is confined within the four walls of classroom, better defined as the conventional approach of education. Today, the reach has travelled beyond geographical boundaries and other barriers to set foot in everybody’s world at no hassle.
Yes indeed, the advancements of new age learning approaches like, distance learning, online education, homeschooling, etc has opened a wide platform for the career-oriented individuals in offering them the scope to take up education anytime and anywhere without any compromises to enhance the career advancements prospects. Online education has laid for the careerists the wonderful opportunity of taking their education forward, even in the presence of personal and professional responsibilities.
Now, if you might ask about the effects that the new age learning approach has brought upon the individual, the answers will be many. Primarily, pursuing an online learning program allows the career-oriented individuals to schedule learning at his or her pace within their own time-frame without the commitments of regular study schedule. Additionally, a student willing to pursue an online distance learning MBA in UK can readily enroll for the program, even within other obligations and commitments without much worry.
While, enrolling for an online education program allows the career enthusiasts to color their dreams in their own way, the choice of homeschooling allows them to build up an educational ambiance catering to their own needs. With the introduction of new age learning approaches that have promoted the need of students more than the needs of teachers or society all, learning is embraced with an open heart in all corners of the world.
The conventional mode of education, on the other hand, cannot be completely ruled out from its place of priority, as it allows not only educational, but also social growth of an individual alongside personality development and evolution of other vocational skills. With change being apparent in the world of education, the choice of embracing learning is best left upon the students of today – the future of tomorrow.
When you go off to college for the first time it can seem like a harrowing experience. You have no idea what you are doing or who to talk to. Well, in my case I have been a ‘first time student’ three times. Once for myself, then for my mother who returned to school, and last for my younger brother. Going through this experience so many times has allowed me to get a good grasp on what is required, what is helpful, and what pitfalls you should avoid. Here are some times that might help you out in your new experience:
- Get all the paper work done early – A lot of times people wait until the last minute to get their paperwork turned in. Do not do that. The sooner you get it in the better because there are always problems. The transcripts do not come in, the test scores are missing, or you need to verify your financial information. Whatever the case, waiting until the last minute can mean you miss out in enrolling and getting the classes you want, or even any classes at all! Get your stuff in early and with the right departments.
- Check before you start – Even if you have everything turned in and ready to go, you think, always do a second check about a week before the semester begins. Something usually snags up around that time. This way you have a chance to fix it before it cases ant bad issues and you also can get back in touch with everyone to verify everything is running smoothly.
- Know your departments – Always get to know who is in charge of departments like financial aid, billing, and advising. The higher up you go, the more helpful and knowledgeable the people are. Once you get a name and hopefully an email address, you are set for the rest of your college career. Being a familiar face to a manager can mean the difference between getting the money and classes you want and struggling. Make friends with them and keep in touch. It will pay off.
- Get classes early – Always sign up for classes as quick as you can. They fill up so fast, especially ones that are not super early in the morning. Unless you want to start out with math at the crack of dawn, get your class requests in as soon as possible. Plan ahead and do next semester too!
- Dropping is easier than adding – If you are not sure if you will have the time or energy to take all those classes next semester sign up anyway! It is so much easier to drop classes than to find open classes to add at the last minute. You have the option of changing your mind right up until the last minute, so be smart and reserve your place. Do not get greedy, but de plan for the best.
- Know your options – If you do have issues, like a family emergency or other reason you have to miss class or even drop out, let someone know! Do not just disappear silently. I know you think it can’t help, but sometimes people will work with you. You might be able to finish online, get a withdrawal, or even drop the course with no bad reflection on you. You need to find out your options if changes need to be made.
- Not too early, not too late – As for picking your class times, try to be reasonable. Most of us will not want to go to class early in the morning, especially if we went out the night before. Also, taking classes late in the day means you are tired, grumpy and want to go, which is not great either. Be smart and take classes when your brain is at its best. Even if you have to pack your lunch and eat in the few minutes between, it is well worth it in the long run.
- Spread it out – Do not take all hard classes or all easy classes. Mix it up and give yourself a chance to breathe. I know you want to get the hard ones out of the way, but burning yourself out is not the way to do it. Always try to have at least one fun class every semester to keep you going.
- Be social – I know that is not something that is normally an issue, but remember that college is a time to make friends and build relationships. Do not get so caught up in education that you forget to socialize. Have fun! Do not go overboard or forget your studies, but do not make yourself miserable either. College should be a fun time for you to enjoy life and learning.
- Do not worry about your major – There are tons of people I know that had no idea what they wanted to major in for the first two years of school. In reality, it does not matter much those first few semesters. Later you will need to figure it out, but for now take the basics and relax. You will find out what you are good at and enjoy as you get along in your courses.
- Keep track – Always know what you need to do next. Advisors are great, but they are often overloaded and confused. Keep track of your own needs and desires and make a plan. You do not want to waste your time and money on classes you do not need.
- Mind you money – Often the chance to get loans and grants sounds great… Until the time comes to pay them back. Grants are free money, so take them, but loans are dreadful. Do your best to get scholarships or pay cash for your classes if you have a job. Make sure you use your money wisely and try to stay on a budget.
- Get your books cheap – There are better places to buy your books than the school book store. Try buying them online or most schools have an off campus books store with used books that are priced very reasonable and you do not have to pay or wait for shipping.
- Read the fine print – You will be signing a lot of papers. Please read what you sign. If you do not feel comfortable with a loan agreement, an apartment or dorm rental agreement, or any other paperwork-ask questions. Many times they can be modified or changed depending on the circumstances. Do not be like me! I signed an apartment lease for two semesters when I was only taking one that year! What a pain to get out of and deal with when I had to leave! Verbally I was told it was for one semester, but I did not take time to read and it caused a lot of problems.
- Transferring – Another thing I have done a lot in my college career is transfer schools. You lose a lot of credits that way and end up repeating classes. It is not fun, but it is sometimes necessary. Always make sure that if you plan on transferring that you take classes that are accepted by the next school.
There are hundreds of tips I could share with you. I have lived through many years of college, personally and vicariously. Through all that experience I have picked up a few things, but hopefully these few tips will help you to be successful in your first year of college and beyond. Good luck and have fun!

So this is it: you’re about to enter your last year of high school, your very last year of living at home. Here, from someone who’s been there before, are six crucial pointers for getting the most out of 12th grade:
1. Get your testing done.
Whether you’re taking the SAT or ACT, you’ll need a decent score by August or September of your senior year. Consider getting a tutor. Make sure you show up on the testing day in good condition and as confident as you can be.
2. Take care of college applications early.
You should be doing your homework on this by the end of junior year, or at least by summer. Many schools offer options called Early Admission or Early Decision; some of these are binding, some are not. If you have your heart set on a particular school, and it’s not too much of a long shot, consider doing this to end the suspense early
3. Don’t let your last semester slide.
Even if you’ve done #2 and your destination is secured, don’t slack off too much in the final term. Colleges do occasionally check. There’s also the possibility of flunking out, which would put your future on the line. And if you end up on a wait list until well into the summer (it does happen), they’ll certainly check your last transcript.
4. Break up with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
OK, let’s just be honest. It’s not going to last forever. It’s not even going to last past Columbus Day. You’re going to have a cute neighbor down the dormitory hallway, or your sweetheart is, or you’re each going to suspect the other does, which will ruin what’s already left of your flimsy phone-based relationship.
5. Enjoy your friends.
You’re about to leave for probably the most fun experience of your life, but you may find, looking back later, that high school was tied for first place. Take advantage of it. Have some quality time with parents or siblings before you move out. Tell your friends what they mean to you. Do some stuff you shouldn’t (but nothing that will get you into trouble). You’ll never be quite so carefree again, so let the good times roll.

These days, education is becoming more and more expensive. All around the country, college tuition soars higher and higher every single year. The costs of textbooks, as well, have become much more expensive than they ever have been in the past. Indeed, college is a very expensive endeavor these days, and there is seemingly no end in sight. The good news is that there are alternatives. A college education is not necessarily needed when you have personal access to all the knowledge and information available across the globe. This is the possibility that the internet provides. It takes a lot of dedication and focus in order to truly learn something, but it is possible. On the internet, there are a ton of education web sites, and better yet, there are a ton of free education web sites. Here is a rundown of some of the most popular free education web sites available on the internet:
1. Khan Academy
The Khan Academy is probably the most popular and the largest free educational resource available on the web, and for very good reason. The focus of the web site is on education via videos. The Khan Academy web sites features thousands and thousands of educational videos that are in every single subject that you can imagine. Since beginning in 2006, the Khan Academy web site has been visited by millions upon millions of people across the globe, from all sorts of backgrounds and lifestyles. Khan Academy is the very definition of a democratic educational institution. Other than the videos that the site provides, the Khan Academy web site also features short exercises which help students retain the knowledge that they had just learned from the lessons of the educational videos.
Coursera is one of the newer phenomenons and business models in the free online education web site industry. Just like any other web site, most of these free education sites rely almost strictly on advertising revenue, although some do take donations and things like that. Coursera has adopted a completely different type of business model, in that it has actually partnered with real United States colleges and universities in order to provide some of their classes for free. We are talking about the very same classes that college students pay an arm and a leg for. Some of the colleges that work with Coursera are Princeton, Stanford and California State- Berkeley. This site is unique because they offer real, scheduled classes, much like a university, and therefore require signing up for classes in advance and doing homework and other exercises that will help you learn.
3. Stanford open lectures on iPad
These are great because you can listen to lectures from some of the world’s most respected professors on any subject that you care to learn about. The best thing is that these lectures from Stanford, Yale and other universities and colleges are completely free on iTunes. All you have to do this listen- on the bus, washing dishes, at work- and you can learn in the process.

The collective amount of student debt shoulder by US college grads is stunning. Not too long ago, that amount eclipsed the collective credit card debt of the country—there is over $1 trillion dollars of student loans waiting to be repaid. That’s a shocking figure, and one that has served as the rallying try for student loan reform in this country. Those both major political parties have no problem blaming each other and making this topic a key campaign-year issue, though neither has enacted any significant legislation to fix this clearly broken system.
While I don’t have the political know-how to suggest a clear path towards student loan reforms, I can do my best to inform college students on how to make smart choices about their own loans. I know the ropes from experience, and let me tell you that you can get way in over your head if you don’t take the time to research and plan out the entire process. So without further ado, here’s what I have to say.
Be smart about loans from the very beginning
The last thing you want to do is graduate from college with $50,000 in loans and have no idea how you let things get so out of control. While that sounds like a worst case scenario, the truth is that many college students graduate with that kind of debt with no clear plan about how they will pay it off. To avoid that financial catastrophe, I highly recommend spending time researching loan options, payment plans, and budgeting for anticipated expenses in college.
There are plenty of resources available to keep you informed: you can discuss financial concerns with an advisor at your local bank, you can speak to a relative or a family friend who has gone through a similar situation or you could consult a financial aid counselor at your college. Don’t be afraid to reach out: so many people have been in your shoes and wish that they had talked to someone before they took out loans. The more information you learn about the loan process, the less likely you’ll end up blown away by your debt.
You don’t have to spend the entirety of the sum you borrowed
If you do get approved for student loans—whether they’re from the government or from a private bank—plan out a smart budget that accounts for how you’ll spend it on school-related expenses. That budget should allow you go through college without worrying about expenses, but that doesn’t mean that you should blow all the money you get. You don’t have to spend the entirety of your student loans just because it’s sitting in your bank account. Paying off your loans later on will be much easier if you save some of your original sum for after graduation.
A necessary evil?
Student loan debt isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean that future college students have to suffer such a terrible fate. While many college students (including myself) need student loans in order to pay for books, housing, and living expenses, the important thing is to realize how much of those loans are necessary for expenses. Like with credit cards, many students get in big trouble when they spend the entirety of their loans on luxury items and miscellaneous expenses. If you treat your loans with respect for the financial consequences they could cause you, you might have a much easier time paying them off in the future.

Most students today have had some kind of experience with online education. Many have taken online courses before, worked with online tutors, or know friends who do. The ins and outs of online courses are fairly easy to understand, especially for younger students who are used to doing things online. However, there are definite differences between taking a class or working with a tutor in person and doing so online. If you work with students online or are helping htem prepare and study for classes that are held online, keep these simple, but common mistakes some students continue to make in their online courses.
1. Assuming an online course can be blown off.
Students often write off online education programs as less of a commitment that taking a traditional course on a college campus. However, this assumption could not be further from the reality of taking an online class. Online courses are just as much of a commitment, financially and academically, as enrolling in a traditional classroom course. In fact, many students find that online programs require more of a time commitment that on-campus classes, because they can be very writing intensive and dependent on participation in forum discussions. Make sure that any student you work with in online education is aware of this reality and prepared to take on an online course with the same drive as they would an in-person course. The same goes for any sort of learning session online. Do your best to let students know that there is no difference in expectations just because you are not physically in front of them.
2. Misinterpreting the billing process.
When students sign up for an online course, some often make the mistake of thinking the billing process will be just as simple as purchasing a pair of shoes. However, most online schools and tutors have particular requirements that must be met by the student to stay in good standing. If there is a payment plan set up, make sure that your students know there will be multiple payments to be made on specific dates. It’s also good to encourage students to do their research before you choosing a program. Spending too much or choosing a poor quality program is very common among online students who fail to do the appropriate research.
3. Failing to Manage Your Time
The hardest part of learning online is the fact that you, and only you, are responsible for “attending” class and getting your work done in a timely manner. There are rarely common class times that must be attended online, and you can choose to listen to lectures and add to forum discussion at any time, day or night. This can be difficult for new online learners, because the amount of self-discipline it takes to succeed can be shocking. Students have to actively schedule time to participate in course discussion, review lectures, ask questions, and complete assignments. Online students must learn to be absolutely regimented in their personal schedules and must not budge on allotted study time. When doing any kind of online education instruction, make sure students know that if they are not able to manage their time well, they could run the risk of procrastinating and falling completely behind the other students.

Social media is quickly becoming one of the most common ways in which people find jobs. There are many sites that host classified ad- like services online for job postings, such as Craig’s List, Monster and Simply Hired- but, other sites like Facebook and social media outlets are much better in terms of networking as a method to finding a job, and the best of these networking social media sites is probably the site known as Linked In.
Most of these types of sites are usually underutilized because users see them as simply just an online version of a Rolodex, and do not fully realize the abilities and opportunities that are available to them outside of their networking contacts. Even with the internet, most people still get their jobs through networking and word-of-mouth, as in they know someone who knows someone that is hiring, and then you can connect the dots to the job. Linked In is a great way to find a job via networking, and there are some basics that you need to be familiar with in order to be successful on the site.
Do not leave anything unfinished
Most people create a Linked In profile, but never finish it. It is crucial to have a complete profile on Linked In because it shows potential employers that you are serious about finding a job, and it will give them information on your full background, work history, education and skills, which they will use when factoring whether or not to give you a shot at their company or business. Once the profile is completely filled, you may notice a plethora of job opportunities coming your way.
Flesh out the network
Linked In is all about networking, and odds are some of the people in your network will have a Linked In profile. But, then again, some may not. So, it is up to you to contact those people and invite them to create an online Linked In profile. The more people you have in your network, the more job opportunities will be available to you and the more exposure you will have on the site when people are searching for someone with your skills.
Utilize the search engine tool
It seems as though the internet was built for the search engine specifically, and it is no different with Linked In. But, for some reason, many users tend to overlook to search engine function on the site and instead just rely on their contacts and networks. Sometimes, the job you are looking for will not be available via your contacts and networks, so the onus is on you to go out there and search for the opportunities that you want.

Although it is always a good idea for you to have a private tutor for your child, there are going to be specific times when it is almost vital. This is going to be the case when you need some type of state state test tutoring so that your child is going to be able to score highly on the tests that will follow them throughout their educational career. For example, when it’s time to take the SAT, you don’t simply want your child to take the test and then to deal with the consequences at some point in the future. It is not only necessary for you to have a tutor before the SAT is taken, it is often a good idea for you to have some form of creative SAT preparation so that they will be able to score as highly as possible (Source: Creative SAT Preparation by Tutor Spot).
The same is also true for other tests that are taken for college assessment. For example, ACT test tutoring is going to help the student to score much more highly, which will give them the opportunity to enter into the college that they desire. You should make sure that you consider all of the elements that are necessary to make this work as smoothly as possible. This may include getting the registration done in a timely fashion as well as looking for some of the test sites that are available in your area. With the right tutoring, as well as plenty of advance preparation, you will find that you are scoring much more highly on these tests which will benefit you in many different ways.
Everyone knows that having a stellar GPA, a well written essay, and great SAT/ ACT scores are the principle elements needed to get into a good college. However, these are not the only factors admission officers take into consider when shuffling through a pile of applications. While an applicants who can demonstrate that he or she studious is always welcomed, what admission officers are really looking for is an applicant who can prove he or she is well-rounded. Meaning, admission offices want to find someone who is three-dimensional— someone who isn’t only comfortable buried in the books. That’s because well-rounded students—those who excel in their studies and in other areas— generally have more to offer and can potentially help bring more prestige to the school. That said, to learn a few ways that can help demonstrate that you are a three dimensional student, try the following.
Run for Homecoming Court
It may seem like a shallow activity to participate for some, but running for homecoming court doesn’t mean that you’re vain necessarily; it suggests that you’re “likeable” and that means a lot to admission officers. Winning (or even being a nominee) for the homecoming court means that you have a lot of friends, you’re most likely charming, and you’re sociable—after all, why else would anyone have voted for you? These traits are highly favored because admission officers know that well-liked people are more likely to succeed in whatever field they choose to pursue.
Joining a club is a great way to show admission officers that you are actually interested in something and that you know how to successfully manage your time to make good grades and commit yourself to an additional activity. But being simply a club member isn’t always enough. To really “wow” admission officers, typically you need to have a title such as president, vice president, historian, secretary, or even cheer captain or quarterback. This demonstrates that you have a passion to lead and take charge, more qualities admission officers favor.
Participate in Contests
Any kind of award can make you seem more prestigious, especially if you win contests that directly correlate to the field of study you want to pursue. For example, if you want to be an English major, entering in a few writing contests on your own is a great way to do this. If you want to become a journalist, perhaps entering is some news writing contest can be equally as effective. But participating and winning contests can show that you have a true passion for whatever it is that you want to pursue and that you have a go-getter attitude to go out and search for all of the contest opportunities.
Last but not least, having a substantial amount of volunteer hours under your belt is a great way to show admission officers that you are a humanitarian and that you care about making the world a better place. While some clubs require their members to fulfill a number of hours, admission officers will be even more impressed if you take the initiative to an organize a local park clean up, tree planting session, or food drive entirely on your own.

If you’re looking to start a career in finance, you have a number of options to choose from in terms of the path you can follow. In order to gain some knowledge on how to go about the whole process of deciding what you want, you should visit some investment forums and understand all that you can about financial analysts, such as how they are hired, what the entry level position demands, the kind of money you’ll make, the kind of promotions you can get, how long it takes to be promoted and so on, so that you’re not venturing into a system blindly.
There are various options to consider in a career in finance such as:
Working with a large corporation or a company:
When you are working in a large company as a financial analyst, the scope of your job begins with working with divisional groups and understanding and analysing their profit and loss statements. You will have to work on elements such as budget sheets, balance sheets, budget analyses, analysing the profit and loss and reporting your findings to a higher authority along with a proposal on what can be done in order to improve areas where the division is falling short.
A lot of the analyses that you conduct will be related to sales analyses such as costs, the cost of labour, resources, materials used, items that are under the budget or overruns in the budget, inventory analyses, increasing the profitability, the optimal SKU mix and so on.
In addition to this, one also has the option of working in the accounts department and keeping books on matters such as liquidity ratios, asset turnover ratios and so on. If you choose to work in stock analyses, then most of your job description will include analysing corporate annual reports.
The plus side to working with a larger company as opposed to a smaller one is that you will be offered corporate training workshops, the chance to move around within the organisation and of course, benefits as well.
Working with an investment firm or brokerage:
An investment firm offers advice to clients on how to invest their money and where in the most effective manner possible. It also works in selling mutual funds, stocks and bonds. Generally, investment firms have a different department that works in research and analyses different macro and micro factors that affect the market and consumer thinking and purchase patterns. These factors can also cause stocks to drop in their value and on the basis of what they’ve learnt, they advise their clients whether or not to move their stocks or invest somewhere else.
You can choose to work in any of these fields within an investment firm as they all require similar skills in juggling numbers, understanding economics and analysing consumer behaviour.
Working with real estate or insurance:
Real estate is always a booming sector and a good field to work in as people always need property, no matter what financial factors may be influencing the market. It allows you enough room to be creative while making the sales pitch and be analytical while knowing what areas are thriving and what areas are not good investments.
Similarly, insurance is also a booming sector. Whether you’re looking for home insurance, health insurance or even car insurance in Dubai, the field itself is always one that is high in demand. With an increasing number of mind sets shifting from need to want and basic amenities to absolute comfort, more and more families are opting to purchase more than one vehicle in a family, which is why car insurance in Dubai, is a goldmine.
So, now that you know the various fields available in a career in finance go out there and do your homework!
