Choosing a course

Weigh up your options—whether that means deciding on the right study area for your interests, or comparing similar courses offered by different universities.

Eligibility and applying

Understand the eligibility criteria for the courses you’re considering and finish the call knowing exactly how to enrol or apply. Better yet, we can do it over the phone with you. 

Funding options 

Get to know how you’re best placed to pay for study. We can help you understand whether you might be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP). 

Recognition of prior learning or experience

See whether you can carve time off your desired course using the work or study experience you already have. 

A word from Mabel at Open Universities Australia

Mabel is an Associate Product Manager at Open Universities Australia. She helped the new book a consultation function come to life and knows exactly why it’s so exciting for those looking for guidance when it comes to study.

“The book a consultation feature gives potential students the ability to schedule time with a pool of expert student advisors who are knowledgeable, friendly and readily available to guide them through any questions or concerns,” she says.

“We believe that the time of our students and the time of our advisors should be equally respected. We wanted to make sure potential students were more ready to have a conversation about their future by the time we got in touch with them. This tool allows us to do just that!”
