MedlinePlus Now I'm not entirely sure how it works and how your college MedlinePlus all set ( I also live in Cananda if that makes a difference . So hear are my questions : MedlinePlus MedlinePlus while I 'm doing my degree I can also take other courses , such as a business management course ? MedlinePlus On average , how long does a course take to complete 120 hours ? MedlinePlus Are online courses harder ? MedlinePlus Can you do two degree programs at once? MedlinePlus If so , it is very difficult ? MedlinePlus What is the average number of courses taken in a semester ? MedlinePlus Also I have a daughter who does not want to sacrifice to be in school 24/7 , then I have to stretch MedlinePlus for me to go to school longer? My course If you would like to have two undergraduate programs ( at the same time or not true) and about 7 different courses , how long it takes, taking into account my daughter .
If I did not commit and do very well in high school, in this regard I will be accepted into a degree program ?

I'm from the U.S., but I'm pretty sure it's probably the same. MedlinePlus 1) You should be able to take the classes you want, and if you do not count toward your specialty may be counted as electives. However, many programs tell you type of electives to choose from, for example, you might say, a social science, it would be something like psychology, sociology, anthropology. You can still take electives other but can not count toward your degree and will extend the time going to school. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 2) 120 credits will take about 4 years to complete, maybe a little more if you have to take smaller loads than suggested courses (and many people do.) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 3) Online classes are not really difficult, but requires more discipline because you have to set some time aside for reading and self-employment. You will not have a conference to get a lot of information. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 4) You can probably do a double major (we here in the U.S.), but it will take longer than a single degree. If you decide to do this, see what you can take classes that will fulfill requirements for both degrees. This should be easy if the degrees are similar (two degrees of social sciences, for example.) But it would be more difficult with something like psychology and business. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 5) Are 2 degrees more difficult - yes, just for the time invested. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 6) Most people try to take 12-16 credits per semester. Here we have two main sememsters (fall and spring) and then the summer semester. Not everyone has summer classes, and those who do not usually have 15 to 16 credits during the fall and spring sessions. For those taking summer, then you can take a course load of less than about 12 to 14 credits during the fall and spring. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 7) Do you have to go to school longer to spend more time with her daughter? That's really just a personal choice. The number of credits usually tells you how many hours you will spend in the classroom. For example, a 3-credit class to spend three hours a week in class. Maybe you can take a combination of classroom lectures and online to reduce time away from home. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus 8) Depending on what college are you going to do, how you did in school might have an effect on being accepted immediately. However, if you are not capable of being accepted can still take classes, and if you do well you can apply again later and hopefully you will be accepted.
