As a first step, if you are intending to take any distance learning papers, you are encouraged to contact the department or departments concerned to check your eligibility to take your planned course.

Every distance learning student must complete enrolment for study online for every year in which papers are being taken. This is in addition to any correspondence with teaching departments.
