UBC's Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology (CTLT) offers credit courses and programs to students who require the flexibility of off-campus study.
Why distance education?
Some students may choose to complete a significant part of their degree program by distance. Others may select only one or two distance courses, simply for the experience of learning at a distance.
Distance education courses typically carry full credit toward degree or certificate programs in accordance with the requirements of the UBC faculty concerned.
Contact your advising office
If you are a student enrolled in a UBC degree program, contact your faculty advising office before registering for a distance education course. It's important to ensure that you meet program requirements and faculty guidelines for distance education.
