Can I Still Study Even in Lockdown? 

Yes, you can. Although lockdown has caused the closing of universities, colleges and schools, you can still study. Institutions have adapted their teaching methods. Below are ways explaining how to study during lockdown

Virtual Classes

Most learning institutions have made classes virtually available for learners. This means that instead of having face-to-face classes, you will have virtual classes. So you will have access to your clases via your computer. 

Distance Learning  

Distance learning has been around long before lockdown. It is actually one of the only study methods that doesn’t have to be shut down. This is because with distance learning you don’t have any face-to-face classes. All your learning and studying is done from the comfort of your home. So if you were enrolled in a distance learning institution before lockdown, its educational limitations shouldn’t affect you. However if you aren’t, you can enrol at any time. 

Why Should I Study During Lockdown? 

It is understandable that you might not want to study during the lockdown. However, why would you let a year go to waste? Educating yourself can be the best thing to do during lockdown. 

Many companies will need to restart and rebuild themselves. So this means they will need new staff members as well. By studying , you’ll gain a new skill and increase your knowledge. Making you more employable once lockdown is over. This opportunity can only benefit you. 

Reasons why you Should Study During Lockdown:
