I am constantly thinking about my incomplete higher education, which is out of touch for me now, since I am not getting back to Ruᛋᛋia in any of its shapes on forms (even if Khuilo a.k.a. Vladimir Putin dies and Navalny becomes the president).
I have thoroughly sniffed through the options available in Armenia and Georgia as well as online, and I am more and more inclined to consider the [Open University]. $5,000-$9,000 / year is an acceptable for distance learning depending on the number or credits to be taken, and it seems legit, given the curriculums and Sociology being available as an undergraduate programme.
Of course, this will be a perfect backing for:
- Publishing my findings as a student of a university, not as a nobody from nowhere.
- Finding the like-minded people around the world.
- Getting exposed to a thorough criticism of my ideas so to improve them.
I am still considering the possibility of getting to an Armenian university once I have learnt the language to an appropriate level, but I have a feeling that the universities of the ex-USSR countries are subject to the same set of problems that plague their functioning and the studies of their students.
