Australian distance learning programs allow you to manage family or work obligations that may restrict your ability to relocate or travel while you achieve your educational goals and gain the knowledge and skills you need to advance your career and increase your earning potential.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p mce_style="TEXT-ALIGN: center" style="text-align: center;"> <img alt="flexible study hours with distance learning" height="248" mce_src="images/stories/flexible_study_hours_with_distance_learning.jpg" src="http://www.australia.edu/images/stories/flexible_study_hours_with_distance_learning.jpg" title="flexible study hours with distance learning" width="275" /></p> <p> <br /> Students considering an Australian distance learning program can ensure their success by keeping the following tips in mind:<br /> <br /> 1. Determine your overall educational goals and select a distance learning program accordingly. For example, if you intend to continue your education beyond this degree, check with the institution you will be applying to in order to ensure that your course credits will be accepted. There are many accredited, well-respected distance learning programs available in Australia, making it easy to select a program that will be recognized by other institutions. <br /> <br /> 2. Look into the student services and resources available through each program you are considering. If you are a fairly independent student that works best on your own, the services available may not be of concern; however, if you prefer working in groups or want to ensure that you have ready access to instructors, seek out schools that offer organized online study groups or that encourage regular contact between instructors and students. <br /> <img alt="distance learning provides comfortable study options" height="266" mce_src="images/stories/distance_learning_provides_comfortable_study_options.jpg" mce_style="FLOAT: right" src="http://www.australia.edu/images/stories/distance_learning_provides_comfortable_study_options.jpg" style="float: right;" title="distance learning provides comfortable study options" width="200" /></p> <p> <br /> 3. Consider your current obligations to determine the time you have available for a course of study. This will help you determine the number of classes you can take at one time and help you estimate the time you will need to complete courses. <br /> <br /> 4. Come up with a plan for staying motivated. The self-paced nature of distance learning programs provides students with flexible educational options for accelerated or extended timeframes. Create self-imposed deadlines, set aside study time and establish a cohesive plan to ensure you stay motivated and complete assignments and courses at the pace that works best for you. <br /> <br /> Distance and online learning programs in Australia include programs offering certificates and diplomas, as well as MBAs and post-graduate studies. With a wide variety of programs and study topics from which to choose, Australian distance learning programs are an appealing option for students around the world.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> <br /> <img alt="student signing in for her online class" height="211" mce_src="images/stories/student_signing_in_for_her_online_class.jpg" src="http://www.australia.edu/images/stories/student_signing_in_for_her_online_class.jpg" title="student signing in for her online class" width="325" /></p> <p> Australian distance learning programs are an ideal option for students who wish to take advantage of Australian educational institutions but may not be able to, or may not want to, relocate to Australia for the duration of their study.
