Learning is a life-long process; and its always wise to use the money to invest into yourself.

Coursera is a good platform for learning new things.. Actually, comparing with the Master Degree of NUS, which I’ll be starting this coming August.. the price of the courses are way more cheaper.

Well.. what university can provide is more than a course, it also provides connection, university resources, etc… but this is another topic

So.. one might consider taking more courses on Coursera.. and more importantly, it’s even… Free! (if you’re not taking course for the certificate & not taking the exams)

Here’s a list of Coursera Courses that I might consider taking.. I should really take it slow.. fast usually means incomplete.
