Distance students orientation programme

The Distance Learner Orientation Programme is designed to give you the means to prepare for university study. You will find out how to access the tools and resources for distance learning.

The workshops are broadcast live on the online orientation site. We advise that you load the link five to ten minutes before the session begins. The same session is offered at four different times.
