The benefits of studying through distance learning

Choosing to study through distance learning presents a number of benefits that will allow you to complete your qualification at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. For many, Distance Learning is the only option because of rising tertiary fees. Not only is studying through distance cheaper than studying full time, but it also allows you to study and work at the same time so you can earn while you learn.

If you are self-motivated, and are able to take learning into your own hands, then studying through distance is a viable option to consider. Below we list the benefits of studying through Distance learning at Rosebank College.



If you are looking for convenience, then distance is definitely it. It does not matter where in South Africa you live, you can study from anywhere. Simply log onto the online platform to access your study material.

No classes


If you need to work to pay for your fees, then distance is perfect. It allows you to do both as you don't need to attend classes.


Textbooks included in fees


At Rosebank College distance students will receive textbooks included in their fees. This means you have some extra change for other important things.
