Frequently Asked Questions

What is Distance Learning?

Distance learning refers to a delivery mode and teaching and learning approach that focuses on increased access to education and training where barriers caused by time, place and pace of learning are eliminated. Students can register at any time for a distance learning qualification, but they have a prescribed minimum and maximum time during which to complete their qualification, utilising a specific number of assessment opportunities.
