Opting for online education while you are struggling with the costs of traveling to study abroad, accommodation fees, fee insurance, monthly allowance and many other costs is the perfect solution. Additionally, if you are planning to benefit of an international education provided by the best online university, studying from the comfort of your home is a doable fact. In spite of all rumors you have heard about dedicating your time to an online education form as a waste of knowledge and money, students like yourself are opting more and more for this type of education. Not only distance learning courses are helping you save your time you would definitely spend between home and classes but they are also a good source of gaining knowledge for the fraction of the traditional education costs.
The University of Manchester understands this struggle that is why is offering to Rwandan, Tanzanian, and Ugandan students the possibility to study online Master of Public Health where meritorious students will be repaid through online scholarships.
