In Response To: Bachelor Degree (nancyjosie)

"I would like some information regarding obtaining a Bachelor Degree online.

I am looking for the opportunity to explore another culture and I would like to teach in the Middle East but this is not possible unless you have a Bachelor Degree.

I would like to know whether it is possible to obtain a Bachelor Degree online and if so, would this be recognized worldwide."

I'm afraid this sounds like a very unlikely plan. First of all, the ME jobs that one can get with just a BA and a TEFL cert and some general EFL teaching experience are bottom-feeder jobs. The stable jobs with good pay and benefits go to teachers with related MA and related experience; competition is fairly stiff. It would seem really a step backwards to go from what must be a quite reasonable life in Italy to being exploited by a bottom-feeder ME recruiter who will accept you with such qualifications. Further, I think that very few ME employers will accept online qualifications.
I suggest you move over to the Job discussion Board, where there is a general ME forum and ask over there what you would need to make a successful transition.
