Universities wishing to expand their provision beyond their local catchment areas need to consider whether to bring the students to the tuition or take the tuition to the students. Current-day educational and information technologies make the latter option a much more achievable prospect than it has been in the past. Nevertheless, careful consideration needs to be given to the nature of the distance-learning students' learning experiences and the extent to which these may be comparable with those of the local students. These matters are considered in this paper against the background of the Global Campus project whereby Middlesex University's School of Computing Science sought to take its initial steps in distance-learning provision.
