Distance Learning

The University of Halifax is now offering Distance Learning Courses. Students can study for a Certificate in Twenty Eight Metres, or chose to do a Foundation Degree in Six Yards. If you've got a couple of years to spare, and if you have the stamina, you can get a BSc in Twenty Six Miles. These modules build on the success of similar courses in Weights and Measures that the University ran last year.

"I thought it was a bit heavy going at first," said student Kelly Barbell, who is studying for a BSc in Sixteen Tons. "For a while I just seemed to be getting another day older and deeper in debt. But I found that putting my shoulder to the wheel really helped to give me a lift, and it's now become much less of a burden."

The University says that demand is high and that places are filling up fast. In fact, interest has been so intense that they are already planning an advanced course in Volume next year. "Inevitably, it will be quite a dense programme of study," said Professor Gareth Hectare, BOz Hons (Bachelor of Ounces). "But we're confident that most of our students will have the capacity."
