Student news

Date published: 21 October 2011

At Open Universities Australia (OUA), we love to share the stories and online study experience of our students. Therefore, recently we invited students to share why studying through OUA has been rewarding and the best option to meet their lifestyle needs.

It was great to get an insight into some of the many things that our winning students had to say:

"I am very happy with my experience as an online university student with OUA. They are helpful and it is easy to organise exam venue sites, order books and obtain advice when needed. I would recommend this way of learning to anyone. It is never too early or too late to start!" - Katherine Anger

"Studying through OUA was my only option as I live 2 hours from the nearest university. I have found the units I have completed so far both interesting and challenging" - Steven Geeves

"OUA is the only way I can get an education while maintaining the freedom and flexibility to keep travelling, volunteering and living an unchangeable life" - Laura Frot

Congratulations to all five of our lucky winners below who will each receive a $50 VISA Debit Card!
