Is there a difference between "zelfstandig" and "onafhankelijk"?

Zelfstandig was marked wrong, but I know I've seen Duolingo use that word to mean "independent" in the past.

Nee, naar een afdeling wordt normaal niet verwezen als branch.

In some contexts it may refer to a local branch / plaatselijke afdeling. Though here it's turning very much into a "dictionary translation".
