Partner with us

Open Universities Australia’s marketplace is a risk-free way for universities to complement their on-campus student cohort.

Our marketplace is where students can explore, choose and enrol in higher education (level 5 AQF and above) degrees, diplomas and single units—as well as a range of short courses.

We want to collaborate with universities to help them attract more students, that’s why we offer a non-exclusive agreement. University partners have control over pricing and distribution, and are free to bring as many new programs, majors, minors and units to the OUA marketplace as they wish. The ability for universities to set their own prices and offering gives universities control of their competitive positioning.

Flexible service options

We have a range of flexible service options allowing universities to choose the level of support they need.

Short courses

With the Government’s announcement to financial support for up to 20,000 places from 1 May 2020, Open Universities Australia has made the decision to support all university partners by withholding any associated charges for applicable short courses hosted through OUA between 1 May 2020 and 1 December 2020.

We believe that this is the right thing to do at this time when many Australians who have lost their job can retrain in priority areas. We also think that it is the right thing to do for our university partners who are grappling with unprecedented pressures.

Why partner with OUA?

Universities want more students and through flexible service offerings, national marketing campaigns, and opportunities to help bring new programs online quickly, in a rapidly changing environment, OUA is able to support partners who wish to offer more and greater courses, quickly.

Current university partners

OUA students can study complete degree programs and single units from many Australian universities. This unrivalled collaboration of universities enables OUA to offer more than 2,050 units in over 430 programs across seven disciplines—arts, business, education, health, IT, law and science & engineering—at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
