Distance Learning

What is distance learning?

Distance learning is a flexible mode of study which allows learners to study at their own pace, and to study whenever and wherever they want.

Much of the teaching and learning is achieved by means of course packages that contain specially structured learning materials, supplemented by face-to-face tutorials held in the evenings or at weekends.

Features

High-quality learning materials

Course materials are written by highly qualified local and international subject experts. The course contents are available in both print and online formats, supplemented by interactive materials.

Interaction with tutors & other students

Students have plenty of opportunities to check their understanding and discuss course content with others.

Flexibility

Distance learning is a great option for working adults who have busy work schedules and no time to attend regular classes. There are a few deadlines during a course (e.g., assignments to be sent to the tutor by a certain date). Other than that, students control the pace of their study.

Admissions

Anyone 17 years of age or above can apply. Some of the programmes, especially those in the areas of education and nursing, are designed for people already holding certain qualifications. In addition, each programme in postgraduate level stipulates its own programme-specific entry requirements.

Recognition

HKMU is fully accredited and the programmes offered are recognized both locally and overseas.

Support

Learners are given every kind of support they need to succeed in their studies.
