Our Distance Learning study mode is ideal for students who need to adapt around work, family, or other commitments. A variety of delivery methods and additional features ensures that learning is still collaborative, interactive, and interesting. The admission can be undertaken from anywhere in the world. Students in the distance learning class possess a more independent and conceptual learning style, have the highest average scores in all of the student achievement areas.
People with the lowest scores in student achievement in the distance learning course have a more social and conceptual learning style. Students with both a social and applied learning style perform much better in the on-campus class. The outcomes of the academic research suggest that successful distance education students favour an independent learning environment while successful on-campus students show a preference for working with others.
