6 factors when choosing the best online master's degree

Over the past few years, online studies have experienced a huge growth all over the world.

This trend has been accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic, which has forced many universities and schools to teach their classes virtually.  

In Spain, online master's degrees are also gaining popularity. According to data from the Ministry of Education, in the 2021-2022 academic year, 21.5% of university master's degrees taught in Spain were online."  

This figure is up from 18.7% in the previous academic year, and is expected to continue to increase in the coming years. What are the factors when choosing an online master's degree?   

Reasons why online master's degrees are an increasingly sought-after option   

Online education offers greater flexibility than face-to-face modalities. Students can study at their own pace and from anywhere, allowing them to combine their studies with work or family.  

Online masters are also a more affordable option than face-to-face masters, since universities and schools offer more competitive prices, as they do not have to invest in physical infrastructure. 

What to consider when choosing an online master's degree program

  • Reputation of the Institution: The reputation of the institution offering the master's degree is critical. Research about the university or educational center, its prestige in the academic field and its recognition in the professional sector.  
  • Quality of the Faculty: Evaluate the experience and qualifications of the faculty. Faculty with practical experience in the field and strong pedagogical skills are critical for effective training.  
  • Schedule Flexibility: Flexible scheduling is essential in online education. Make sure the program allows you to study according to your own schedule, especially if you work or have other responsibilities.  
  • Networking and Career Opportunities: A good institution will offer opportunities to establish professional contacts through networking and events. In addition, a strong connection to the working world, including job boards and internship programs, can be a determining factor.  
  • Student support: Make sure the school has a student support system, an offer of academic advising and learning resources.   
  • Recognition: If you plan to work or study abroad, it is important that the online program has international recognition so that your degree is valid globally.
