Online degree student numbers are growing. In the UK, the latest HESA figures show that 210,005 students in the UK were studying for either an undergraduate or postgraduate degree online last year. In the US, where online learning has really taken off, Babson Research found that over six million higher education students were taking at least one online course in 2010. That number is now at more than 7 million.
