Online and distance (off-campus)

Many of our students choose online and distance education (off-campus) courses so they can study when and where they choose.

Off-campus learning is a flexible way to study. It includes a combination of print study material and electronic communication. You are not restricted to studying only off-campus. You can enrol in both on and off-campus units or change from one to another.
