    [QUOTE=cainy1982;46167653]I used to assume the distance learning degrees were second best to actually attending university, but when I looked into it (before I enrolled) I found the degrees are awarded by an actual university (not RDI or any other distance learning provider) and the qualification, marking and course models are identical to those studying full time at a physical university.

    RDI Donít actually award the degrees these are done externally by the university, mine for example is awarded a BSA from the University of Teeside.

    Hi cainy, there are issues that I don't understand here:
    1. will I get the SAME qualification as those who went to Uni. Teeside?
    2. I perceive majority of people who went to University of Teeside will have good grade as RDI will tend to keep their student within second class lower and pass grade no matter effort they put in the course. I have heard from friends that on-line distance learning students will indeed have bachelor degree but at the end of their course their Bachelor degree will be intentionally graded lower than their on - campus counterpart to avoid COMPETITION IN JOB MARKET.
    3. I am concerned about point 2 above. did you graduated with second class upper and Distinction. Is the program truly a Bachelor degree Program?. Thanks.
