Saskatchewan is a big province. Really big. North to south is roughly 1,225 kilometres. Sheer size combined with a relatively small population mean the education you want isn’t always available in your home community.
Unlike older generations, who only had access to correspondence courses by mail, dog sled or owl post (just kidding), you have excellent options for distance learning, especially with so many cool online tools available.
You can stay close to home while taking first year university courses, for example, or continue working while updating your education and skills. Some post secondary institutions offer complete programs online or via distance, while others offer specific classes.
