The application process for distance courses is the same as the process for regular courses and programmes. 

You can find more information about how to apply for distance courses under 'Applying for studies'.

Application and tuition fees

There are no specific rules for distance courses and programmes in terms of application and tuition fees. If you are required to pay fees, you must also pay them for distance learning.

Things to keep in mind

Remember to check whether:

  • the course or study programme has any required sessions such as lectures, group work or examinations

  • the course or study programme includes other required components such as online sessions (such sessions may occur in the middle of the night if you happen to be in a different time zone).

  • you can access the course or programme syllabus at an early stage so that you can acquire the reading list in advance

  • there is an approved centre for taking the examination if it is not possible to take an examination on the web.
