How Learning Online Can Help You Live a Better Life

For many Kiwis, learning on campus isn’t an option. For some of us, our days are already filled with work and family commitments. Others simply live too far away. Many of us just don’t have the time to spend hours waiting around for our next class to start.   

At eCampus NZ, we remove these barriers. We offer courses and qualifications that work around busy lives, allowing our learners to work, earn, live and learn. 

One of the many perks of learning online is being able to fit your work schedule around your coursework and advance your career as you learn. 

We know that finding work can be tricky at the best of times, and many workplaces can’t cater for employees with set classroom timetables that change every semester. Because eCampus NZ offers regular start dates throughout the year, and learners plan their own study schedules, our learners can make their study work around their professional commitments.  

eCampus NZ learners can be active members of their communities and advance their careers as they upskill and gain qualifications. Our learners are teachers, New Zealand Defence Force officers, nurses, Olympians, and entrepreneurs.  

Another advantage to learning online is that you can inspire your tamariki to aim towards higher education without sacrificing spending quality time together. eCampus NZ allows learners to study at whatever time of day works for themmeaning our learners can fit their learning around nap times, school drop-off, family dinners, sports training and music lessons. Parents with young children can upskill and keep pace with the latest industry trends, ensuring a confident and successful return to work.  

eCampus NZs’ flexible learning options allow our learners to pursue their passions and explore new career options without giving up their financial security. If you’ve always dreamed of starting your own business, you can complete one of our range certificates and diplomas in business without giving up your current job. If you’re the office IT guru and want to take this further, you can complete one of the qualifications in computing and IT outside of office hours.

eCampus NZ learners have the ability to choose when they study and can adjust their schedules around their plans and the unexpected. Our learners can lead rich, full lives as they learn; empowered by the freedom to make their study schedule work for them.
