Studying by Distance
Your study materials may be provided online, by mail or a combination of both.
Some distance units have study schools which are offered face-to-face or by video conference, held either in the evening or on the weekend. For most units these are not compulsory; however, they can assist your learning and are an opportunity for interaction with your lecturer and other students. Participation in online discussions and/or other activities is a requirement for most online units.
External students are entitled to use University facilities, such as the Library (special provisions can be made for remote students).
It is important to complete the Courier Address section on the eStudentCentre, even if it is the same as your home address. You will find that option at the bottom of the Enrolments > Change Address menu under Other Addresses.
Student ID Cards
If you are unable to visit the campus, you can email a passport style JPG file to Student Centre.
Please use your UTAS Student email account and include your full name, Student ID number and a scanned copy of other photo ID such as your Drivers Licence. Or you can call the Student Centre on 1300 361 928.
Providing you have selected Distance mode when you enrol in a unit online, you will have the opportunity to sit examinations at a venue close to your location. The Examinations office will contact you before the exam timetable is released with advice about approved venues, if your location is very remote you may be asked to nominate a venue.
