Sydney Distance Education High School enrols students in the greater Sydney Metropolitan area. SDEHS drawing area

Distance education is an alternative option for students who are not able to continue their education in their local high school and who are not able to fulfil their educational requirements at their own school. Students must meet specific guidelines to be eligible for distance education enrolment.

What are the benefits?
Studying by distance education enables students to: 

  • have direct contact with teachers by email, phone and post
  • be visited by teachers where possible
  • attend study days, seminars and excursions to provide contact with other students
  • borrow excellent resources from an extensive library which includes books, DVDs, CD ROMs, music CDs, audio books and pamphlets.

Students can attend Sydney Distance Education High School as fulltime students or under single course provision.

Fulltime applications can be made for students who are not able to attend a face to face school.

Single Course Provision is available for students who are currently attending a face to face school that cannot offer the student a particular course.

  • have direct contact with teachers by email, phone and post
  • be visited by teachers in their school where appropriate eg supervisor of major HSC works
