Ensure you're prepared for your study with our webinar series.

Our 'Waiting to Start' webinar series has been specifically designed to support students who are about to start studying with OUA. The webinars are an opportunity for you to access information, meet presenters and connect with other students.

The sessions are hosted by our Student Success Team who present topics that will help prepare you for online study and your first OUA study term. The webinar links below are for students waiting to commence their studies with OUA in Study Period 4, 2016. Please refer to your most recent email communications for the latest information.

If this is your first time participating in an OUA webinar - or any webinar - we recommend following our webinar setup instructions at least one day before the session, as well as entering these sessions 5-15 minutes before they begin so you can make sure you feel prepared.
