Welcome to the Institute of Distance Education
The Institute of Distance Education was established specifically to provide educational and training opportunities for individuals who had been unable to undertake conventional and professional university programmes and courses. Distance education targets you if you are:
- in full-time employment and can not not attend classes on a full time basis.
- self-employed and also can not not attend University on a full time basis.
- unemployed and need further education and training to get employment and/or to improve your life; and
- a post high school graduate who wish to enrol at the University but because of the shortage of places on the full time programmes, you could not be admitted.
The vision of the Institute of Distance Education is to be an international centre of excellence in distance education access, delivery, practice, research and life-long learning.
