DISTANCE LEARNING (HOME STUDY)
Students work at their own pace using study material at home.
They write assignments, which they submit to institutions by post
or email. Often tutors are available to offer assistance by phone or
online as well as at occasional lectures/tutorials. Some distance learning
institutions have local facilities for those who live nearby.
UNISA is a distance learning institution, which means that all its programmes of study
are offered as distance learning. The programme codes begin with SA.
