Studying by distance can be a great way to manage your commitments while earning a qualification. Online study offers the flexibility and convenience to study at a time and a place that fits in with work, family and other commitments.
However, distance study also requires self-discipline and organisation, to manage your time effectively and to stay focused. Without the structure of regular class attendance and the social opportunities that come with campus life, you may also feel disconnected from your studies and fellow students.
To help you stay connected, students have access to a wide range of supports and services, accessible by phone, online or by visiting a UTAS campus. Take some time to learn how to access these through the information below. As a distance student you are definitely not on your own!
