Students studying in distance mode normally are not required to physically attend on-campus teaching or learning activities, with the course predominantly being delivered online or by the use of other distance education activities utilising a range of support materials or resources.
Students may be required to participate in collaborative online learning experiences with teaching staff and/or other students and will be expected to undertake significant independent study as part of their learning experience. Distance students will be able to access a range of support and services through the extensive network of CQUniversity campuses and study centres. Students studying in distance mode at the course level can enrol only in units that are available in either distance or mixed mode. Distance students cannot enrol in on-campus units.
