About Distance Learning

USQ has been at the forefront of distance education in Australia for more than 25 years. With more than twenty five thousand students choosing to study through distance education each year, the university is well-positioned to provide support to its off-campus students, regardless of their geographical location. There are many advantages attached to studying through distance education. These include:
the ability to gain the same degree, with the same lecturers, as on-campus students
the opportunity to study regardless of where you are in the world
the opportunity to meet other life commitments, such as work, family or travel whilst studying
the ability to vary the number of courses you take in a semester to suit your circumstances
the ability to study a part of your degree by distance learning and part on-campus if your circumstances change
the ability to have a study program designed to suit your needs
the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our courses are internationally recognised and accredited, (testament to the fact that you’re studying with one of world’s finest and most awarded distance learning providers)
