Distance Learning

What is distance learning?
Distance learning provides an alternative option to traditional classroom-based learning. This method of education allows students to study anywhere, as there are no classroom-based lectures. Distance learning provides greater access to education for students who are unable to attend traditional classes or lectures due to family commitments, a busy work schedule, physical disability, lack of transport, or lack of educational institutions in their area. Distance learning courses can be offered at all levels. Matric certificates, National Certificate N4 -N6, and short courses can all be completed via distance learning on our web site.


What are the advantages of distance learning?
There are a number of advantages of distance learning. Some of them are as follows:
  • Students are able to study from home. This means that they won't need to travel to classes or relocate in order to be closer to campus to learn.
  • It increases access to education and training.
  • People can work and study at the same time - it isn't necessary for distance learning students to give up their full-time jobs.
  • Students can generally determine at which pace they will complete their studies.
  • Students can choose from a wide range of courses, as they aren't limited to courses offered by institutions within travelling distance.
  • The distractions and temptations of campus life are absent.
  • Distance learning is often more affordable, because travelling costs aren't applicable.
  • Students can study from anywhere in South Africa.
