Higher Education Institutions


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.
