Getting a qualification doesn’t have to mean changing your lifestyle or where you live. If you can’t get to the classroom every day, you still have plenty of options to complete your course through online and distance education.
Each course is a unique mix of many different ingredients — from the subjects covered, to the student body, to the end career it leads to. You can use these points as a checklist of things that you need to find out about courses of interest.
The type of institution you choose will depend largely on whether you want to study a higher education course or a Vocational Education and Training (VET) course, but it will also be influenced by the style in which you would like your course to be taught.
A vast number of elements combine to make each institution unique. While none of them makes an institution better or worse overall, these differences can mean an institution is a good or bad choice for you.
