an external student in respect of a unit is a student undertaking study by a mode that does not require regular attendance at the institution; utilising distance education materials (including online or print based unit handbooks and study guides, assessment materials, etc) and interaction with academic staff through such means as e-mail, online access, residential schools and weekend schools.
Away from the main campus or offices. An external degree may be earned by home study or at locations other than on the school's campus.
Unit offerings are internal unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered externally, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered both internally and externally from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
