  • Postgraduate conversion courses: these are a postgraduate course that a student will pursue if he wishes to take a different career path from what he studied for in the undergraduate program. To do this, a student must show that he had a passion for the career path before. If for example he wants to be a Math teacher, one must be able to show that he had an interest in a classroom environment even if it was as an untrained teacher. This will qualify him to go for an on-line math degree. If it is a law course, he must have previously worked under a lawyer before to prove that it is true that it’s the career path he would like to take.

Conversion courses are the breath of life for many students who just enter a university, take a course just to have a sense of belonging or simply because that is what their parents want them to become. However, this should not be the case, one must have to set a clear goal in life when he enters a university. Decide who you want to become, not who your friends or parents want you to be. This will save you the trouble of having to incur an extra expense that conversion courses cost. Remember an online masters degree is not free if you get a chance to study, do your best. Do not let the freedom ruin your commitment to excel in life, make a schedule and stick to it. If your tutor gives an assignment, ensure it is done well if it is a test, do it in the best way. Make use of every cent you have spent on that online economics degree and you will reap the fruits of your work in the end.
