Distance and flexible learning

Female student in rural setting

Distance learning provides a flexible approach to studying, allowing you to choose when and where you learn. This means you can fit your studies around your professional and personal commitments.

In distance learning, all or most face-to-face teaching is replaced by other means of communication and learning resources. These may include online courses, block mode or intensive, specially commissioned learning materials and other resources.

To check the study mode options for your area of interest:

  • go to our course search
  • click the 'Show advanced options' link at the bottom of the yellow search box
  • select either ‘Online’ or ‘Block Mode’.

This will show a list of courses available in each mode.
