The main difference lies in the course structure and learning approach:

Campus Courses: Campus courses follow a structured teacher-student approach to the curriculum. Students attend classes on campus and have the option to choose from two class sessions: regular or weekend. In these sessions, students engage with instructors, participate in lectures, and interact with peers in a traditional classroom setting.

Distance/Online Courses: Distance or online courses are designed for self-motivated learners. Students in these courses have a more flexible learning schedule and access course materials online. The primary mode of instruction is through online platforms, where students can study at their own pace. Additionally, distance students attend classes in person once every two weeks to meet with lecturers for further clarification, intensive practical work, questions and answers, and to take periodic practical project tests.

In summary, campus courses offer a structured classroom experience with regular face-to-face interactions, while distance/online courses provide flexibility and independence in learning, supplemented by occasional in-person sessions for additional support and practical work
