All courses offered by Trison Business College can be completed by attending classes, distance education (correspondence), or combining attendance and distance modes. Some courses are also available online or in an electronic format.
Students completing courses by distance education are sent their course materials following payment of course fees. Assistance is available by email, post, telephone or fax. After hours assistance can also be arranged.
No matter what type of course you study at Swinburne, there is built-in flexibility and choice in the way you study.
We offer a range of study modes that can be tailored to suit your individual needs. Choose the length of time you want to take to complete your course and whether you want to study on or off campus.
Full-time or Part-time study
Full-time study means studying a maximum number of units per year within your particular course.
Many courses are available part time. This allows you to gain a work/life/study balance that suits you. Part-time study means studying less than the required full-time workload, i.e. fewer subjects per semester.
Online study allows you to complete the same qualification as an on-campus student, with the flexibility to work around your other commitments. There are many ways to study online at Swinburne. Many courses are available in online study mode, or they are delivered via Swinburne training partners.
Some postgraduate courses are available via distance education. On-campus attendance is either not required or kept to a minimum. You receive a range of comprehensive learning materials. These may include study guides, readings, set exercises and references. Some distance education programs incorporate online learning.
Some vocational education courses are conducted in a workplace training environment, or a combination of on-campus learning and workplace training. This may involve structured and contextualised learning, workshops and mentoring, as well as Recognition of Prior Learning.
