Coding notes

  • An offshore course is a course that is offered fully or partially offshore. Courses that are offered from within Australia through distance education are not considered to be offshore courses.
  • Internal mode of delivery: course delivery is principally face‑to‑face, requiring regular attendance at a provider or follows an agreed schedule for the purposes of supervision.
  • External mode of delivery – with face‑to‑face component: courses offered via distance education, online learning or correspondence, with compulsory attendance at classes during certain blocks of time.
  • External mode of delivery – with no face‑to‑face component: courses offered via distance education, online learning or correspondence, with no compulsory face‑to‑face component.
  • Multi modal delivery: delivery is organised comparatively equally between internal and external modes of delivery.
  • Where a course is delivered in more than one mode at a campus the main mode of delivery is reported.
