Can I Earn My University Degree Online While Teaching English Abroad?

By: Tyler Parsons

What’s that old saying about cake and eating and keeping it for yourself? You can’t have your cake and eat it too? Not sure that phrase makes a lot of sense, but the point it’s conveying is that a person can’t have something both ways. That some situations call for a person to choose between two tough options. While that may be true in many cases in life, when it comes to advancing your education or traveling the world, maybe you don’t need to make that choice.

Bottom Line: Can you take university classes online or in-person & earn your degree at the same time you are teaching English abroad?

Yes - I did it myself. I earned my Master's Degree in Marketing while teaching English abroad in Hong Kong.
