Extramural study requires devotion and ongoing dedication. This is so much easier to sustain when you enjoy the process, like a favourite hobby, and when you don't feel alone. After nearly 20 years providing academic correspondence courses in theology, we have learned how to make home study more collegiate, more supportive and more successful for you.
That's why our distance tutors keep in contact with course participants during the whole course process... with ongoing help, comments and encouragement.
EIDTS (the Ecumenical Institute of Distance Thelological Studies) offers distance and dispersed study programmes at tertiary level to adult learners throughout New Zealand. It allows people to work in their own home, in their own time, and at their own pace.
For each course a unit outline, a study guide and readings are provided. One or two textbooks are generally required. Each course has a tutor who is available for advice, help and marking of assignments.
