Amidst the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, The University of Law (ULaw) has reported an incredible 79% year-over-year increase in students accepted to its online campus.
While campuses around the world closed from March to September 2020, the appetite to continue learning online has remained, with searches for online degrees in Canada peaking in April at 20,110 related searches.
The total number of searches for online degrees averaged 5,850 between March and September, with specific queries such as ‘universities who offer online degrees’ seeing an increase of 100%.
This trend is reflected in the number of applications ULaw received for its online campus, which increased by 79% compared to the same time last year. With online programs covering a range of subjects offered from undergraduate to postgraduate levels, ULaw is encouraging prospective students to learn via a method that they’re comfortable with, without jeopardizing the quality of instruction or the value of their academic qualifications.
For those interested in enrolling in an undergraduate degree or a specialized master’s program, ULaw currently offers a range of online programs designed to provide the same experience as on-campus learning. With 24/7 access to learning materials on all devices, students can easily balance their studies with work, family, and personal commitments. They will benefit from a highly interactive program that includes both peer and one-on-one professional tutoring.
All of ULaw’s online programs feature the same level of qualification as their on-campus counterparts, meaning that all online undergraduate law programs are Qualifying Law Degrees and all online postgraduate business programs are CMI accredited.
In March, ULaw successfully switched classes from in‑person to online delivery; as part of the September guarantee, this will continue if campuses are required to close again in the future. Online learning will reflect the in‑person experience that students usually receive on campus by following a similar delivery schedule, with the aim of making the transition back to in‑person learning as smooth as possible for students.
The University is also offering flexible study options for students, including the option to start classes at one campus and then switch to another at a later date, as well as online and blended learning programs. These online and blended learning programs will all feature the same experience, quality of teaching and material as those studying on campus, but students can complete them whenever and wherever is best for them.
Commenting on the surge in online studying, Carol Draycott, Dean of ULaw’s Online Campus, noted: “With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic still dominating our daily life, we expected to see an increase in interest for remote learning as well as our online courses. The peak in interest has reflected people’s change in attitudes towards learning and we’re so pleased we are able to offer these people the opportunity to learn and obtain a degree from the comfort and safety of their own home.
“We have developed our online programmes to deliver the same quality of teaching and learning experience, but with the convenience of being able to study when, where and how you want. We’re also proud to say that for those who would have otherwise been on-campus, we’ve been able to deliver the physical course material needed for their studies.
Supporting our students is at the heart of what we do, so in spite of the challenges 2020 has thrown at all of us, it’s fantastic to see that the determination and ambition among staff and students hasn’t wavered.”
