Section 1 is identified as a distance course (DIS) in a guided learning format (a tutor or instructor guides the learner through course material).

Section 2 is a course available for course extension only.

Section 3 is a section available for those students who want to challenge the course and receive recognition for prior learning. Note that departmental approval is required for Section 3; the description provides a contact number for approval requests by prospective students.
