Unfortunately some of these aspiring students are forced to ignore their dreams of pursing higher learning opportunities because they cannot afford to leave their jobs and businesses and attend formal lessons because they have other responsibilities to attend to. For this reason, the University of Cape Coast has joined many others in the world to develop a system that accommodates students that would love to pursues their academic goals without having to be physically present at the school. This is where the opportunity of distance learning comes from.
