The distance delivery mode provides the student with the opportunity to study in the comfort of their home and to plan the study workload according to their individual pace. The support offered online and through other means ensures that the student is not left feeling alone in this process and can still enjoy high quality support throughout the process.
Our distance delivery has been designed with distance students’ needs in mind, and includes the following:
• A structured learning environment online that will take you through the learning process making use of the best of instructional design thinking that will enable you to understand and apply as you progress through the studies. The online design will ensure that you do not get lost.
• A learner guide designed to lead the student through the textbook. It includes questions and answers for practice and revision.
• Online Tutors who are subject experts and maintain the human experience of the learning process in each module with you.
• A Programme Success Tutor who supports your learning journey across all your modules.
Students will be provided with the added value of face–to-face sessions. These sessions are highly recommended, as they provide the opportunity for rich discussion and conceptual explanation and to meet fellow students with whom to network. Students who attend face-to-face sessions are more likely to be motivated and to remain committed to their studies. However, should students not be able to attend any face-to--face sessions, the learner guide, textbook and online facilitation will provide the necessary support for student success throughout the four years of study.
