Universities

Choose from leading Australian universities

Through Open Universities Australia (OUA), you can study units and courses online with 12 leading Australian universities. You get the flexibility that comes with online learning, but you'll graduate with exactly the same qualification as you would as an on-campus student.

It's one of the many ways we give you choice, letting you select the path towards a qualification that suits you best.

Which university should I choose?

That'll depend on the area of study you're interested in, the level you want to study at and what you're looking for from your course.

Don't forget that for many courses offered through OUA, you can (and sometimes even must) study units from multiple universities. If you want to complete a Swinburne Bachelor of Business with an Economics major, for example, you'll need to study units from the University of South Australia and Curtin University. Browse the institutions below to get an idea of what you can study with each one.
