Benefits of distance education

The advantages of studying by distance education allow you to:

  • change or enhance your career prospects wherever you are - rural, metropolitan or overseas
  • fit study around work, social or family commitments. You can even study at home in your PJs!
  • vary your study load to suit your schedule - full-time or part-time distance study is available with many CSU degrees
  • develop and demonstrate your autonomy through self-motivation and self-direction of your degree
  • be included in uni life through contact with other students through CSU's online learning environment, residential schools and through direct contact with your lecturers via the forum, email or by phone
  • access university facilities across all five CSU campuses - Albury-Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange and Wagga Wagga - as well as the libraries available through our specialist campuses at Canberra, Goulburn, Manly and Parramatta and our Study Centres in Melbourne and Sydney
  • have time to review your study materials without having to rush off to the next class.

As a distance education student, you:

  • can study wherever, whenever and whatever you want. It's your choice
  • don't have to worry about being at lectures and tutorials at times that may not fit in with your lifestyle
  • have the convenience of course materials being delivered to your home or office
  • usually study two subjects per session, with each subject needing around 8 - 10 hours of study per week
  • have both full-time and part-time study options often available so you can vary your study load to fit in with your schedule - from one subject per session to four or five.
