Tutor information

Contacting your tutor:

The tutors are an integral part of the Distance Education structure. Each course is assigned a tutor who is experienced in the pertinent program area. Distance Education courses are designed for independent learning (although group work may be required in some courses).  The role of the tutor is to assist you during your course and mark your assignments and exams.

After the commencement of your course, you are welcome to contact your tutor. Contact information can be found in Moodle.

Statutory holidays:

Tutors receive statutory holidays and will not be available on these days. There is a one-week break during the Winter holidays.

Assignments, guidelines and course content:

Inquiries regarding assignment dates and course content should be directed to your tutor. Directions for submitting assignments will be included in Moodle.
