How Online Distance Learning Changes Education in the Caribbean

Looking back at the education trends in the past couple of decades, what do you see? A classroom, hundreds of students scurrying here and there and a tutor delivering a dull monologue. And all this was available only to the ones who could afford to go to university. The bricks-and-mortar education system that was restricted to privileged people had little to offer to learners coming from less affluent backgrounds.

With the innovation brought by the Internet, most impediments to education have been removed. Students can now access information whenever they want and learn wherever they are in the world.

RDI supports hundreds of Caribbean students to fulfil their dreams

RDI’s vision is to change people’s world through innovative learning by delivering UK university courses that fit around work and family. Their convenient learning programmes cost up to 60% less than traditional, on campus universities and provide lifetime opportunities to many residing in Caribbean countries.

“My experience with RDI was excellent. The enrolment and course selection process went smoothly. The financial cost of the program was affordable, and because of this I did not have to obtain a loan or seek financial assistance from my place of employment”, says Josina France who got her MBA degree from the University of Sunderland through RDI.

She found studying online a wonderful experience, which enabled her to achieve a UK university degree from the comfort of her home in Antigua and Barbuda.
“I would recommend RDI to anyone who intends to obtain a degree through distance learning because of its credibility; the professionalism and level of support given by the staff; the flexibility it offers to study, and the affordable cost of the programmes”.
