The aim of this study is to determine the effect of distance learning system on academic standing of education faculty’s students at Yozgat Bozok University. Education faculties are one of the leading educational institutions where students and teachers’ interaction is at the highest level. The education provided in these institutions is highly important due to training the teachers who are accepted to have been the pioneer of the society in terms of its change and transformation. The study focuses on to find how there is a relationship between distance education commonly given due to pandemic and academic success of students of the educational institutions training teachers. The descriptive content techniques that are to be evaluated as parts of the qualitative research techniques have been implemented as the method of the study. Within the scope of the research, 223 pre-service teachers studying in different programs of Yozgat Bozok University Faculty of Education have been determined as the study group. 223 students participating in the study have been asked to answer the fourteen questions previously provided in interview through online. In line with the data obtained, it has been noticed that face-to-face education is more efficient compared with the distance education, in spite of the high academic success of the teacher candidates. As a general opinion, even though it is a comfortable education, it has been revealed that distance education can be an alternative rather than a choice to face-to-face education. Along with the advantages and disadvantages of distance education, the opinions of teacher candidates for the development of this system are also presented in the study.
