The salaries that graduates in particular subject areas get will clearly depend on the job they finish up in. After five or so years, many people find themselves working in jobs that have little to do with their degree. However, in general terms, there are differences in the salaries of people with various degrees and statistics are available to show the differences. For example, in Canada, graduates of an MBA earn approximately CDN$82,000 whereas Master of Science graduates earn over CDN$63,000.

Here are three things you should make sure you do, two things you shouldn't do, and one thing that is absolutely forbidden, for online and distance learning.
We recommend that students new to online learning take the Open University UK online course "Living with the internet: learning online".
Just because the program is online doesn't mean that there will be no book reading at all. Many of the courses in a program will have "prescribed texts" that you will be expected to buy or will be included in the cost of the course.
In addition to these prescribed texts, there will also be "recommended texts" - and if they are not available online you may be expected to consult these in a library or buy them.
