Summer courses provide a convenient way to earn credit between the spring and fall semesters. This can be especially advantageous for students needing to retake a course. Students considering early graduation can also benefit for summer courses.
Some learners may choose to educate themselves, although most education is conducted under the guidance of a teacher or instructor. Higher education is often supervised by a professor. Education can occur in a wide variety of settings, either informal or formal.
