Distance education is subject to the same
restrictions as any other programme of study. This means that before enrolling
in such a programme, you must make sure that the programme provider is properly
recognised by the competent authorities in the country where it is located and,
even more importantly, that the programme of studies you plan to follow will be
accepted in your country for your purpose, i.e. by your own institution, by an
employer (potential or actual), by a professional licensing body, etc., as the
case may be.
For information about recognised distance education
providers, contact your national information centre (see links to the
right column); for information about whether specific distance education programmes will
be accepted for your purpose, contact your own institution, employer, or
professional licensing body, etc.
