Blue Marble University is an International Virtual University. Consequently, for Americans, your degrees are issued from overseas, and are accepted in the USA based upon equivalency with USA regionally accredited degrees.
Most Americans are unaware that earning a degree overseas is an option worth considering. If you attend a campus based program overseas, you gain the additional experience of living in a foreign country.
Many overseas institutions are much more affordable than in the USA, which is another big drawing point, and many programs are English based even in countries in which English is not the main language.
Some students may wonder if their international degree will be acceptable in the US, and the answer is “Yes”. Foreign degrees are routinely accepted by the US Federal Government for employment, as well as by state and private employers.
Of course, for licensed professions such as medicine or law, other requirements must normally be met as well, to ensure that licensing can be obtained. If you are interested in a licensed profession, you should check with your licensing board as to whether foreign education is acceptable, and whether an online degree is acceptable. Many professions require that your degree be obtained from a traditional college or university.
Blue Marble University is an international educational institution operating as a virtual university, offering its program globally via distance learning. Although our programs are international, many of our faculty hold PhD’s from USA institutions. And our program is very affordable compared to every other USA undergraduate or graduate school program you might consider.
Study Abroad describes quite a lot of programs overseas, but these are entirely campus based, in contrast to Blue Marble Univesity, which program is totally online.
If you review US graduate programs at GradSchools, it is hoped that you will also compare our affordable online degree program. There are many programs listed at DistanceEducation.org, but no online PhD programs. We offer distance learning doctoral programs in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Instructional Technology, Stem Cell Biology, and Plant Tissue Culture, all of which can be completed online.
OnlineBiologyDegree.org discusses biology education and attempts to list some accredited online biology programs. It is interesting that their blog discusses stem cell biology, suggesting this is an excellent area of study regarding the biological sciences.
So, after you have done your research, please consider Blue Marble University. You will find that, compared to many programs, you will achieve your goals in a convenient and affordable manner.
