Some UQ programs and courses are offered to students via distance learning. Students sometimes enrol in a mixture of on-campus and external courses for added flexibility.
External students in the Faculty of Science should refer to information in the electronic course profile (ECP) and familiarise yourself with information for External Students.
The due dates, policies and procedures remain the same for distance learning students as for on-campus students.
For the due dates, please see the Important dates page on the Starting at UQ website. For a full listing of all official university dates relating to students, please refer to the Academic calendar.
The bulk of material provided to distance-learning students is print-based, utilizing the Blackboard ® e-Learning system, with some material available on CD-ROM, DVD and video.
