“We can provide people with educational opportunities today, to meet the demands of the workplaces of tomorrow. Education is for life — it is an investment that cannot be lost, spent or taken away. Distance Learning does however demand self discipline and the ability to apply oneself constantly to one’s studies, so students must understand this and ensure that they are prepared and able, in terms of self discipline, to accept this challenge. The advantages of distant learning or studying on-line is that one can study when and where you like.

People need to have a goal, and be equipped to make it a reality. They need to be able to understand what is available to them, identify their strengths, and then make choices that will lead to a fulfilling and challenging career and result in a happy and productive life.”
