Get into law without entry requirements

A law degree can open up a range of career possibilities—and it's a qualification that's not out of reach.


Law graduates have the opportunity to influence at a high-level, and actively pursue justice or commit to public service . But passion for policy and people aren’t enough to obtain an offer into a uni degree, with academic requirements restricting many students and professionals from following their dreams.

At Open Universities Australia (OUA), we believe that your academic history should never quash your career goals. So now anyone in Australia, no matter their age, location or educational background, can take the first step towards a law degree by studying online.

Gain an accredited law degree

Through us, you can start studying University of New England’s Bachelor of Laws online, without entry requirements. This is the first time a genuine, accredited law degree has been available to all Australian students, online through OUA.

All you need to do is enrol online into single subjects—and start studying towards your degree. We really make it that simple to get started.

The delivery of this degree program has been developed specifically for online uni students, and in this years’ Good Universities Guide, University of New England scored five stars for Overall Quality and Teaching Experience.

Following completion of your degree, you’ll receive exactly the same qualification as on-campus students (without any mention of online), and be invited to attend your graduation.

How it works

All you need to do is enrol through us in ‘open enrolment’ subjects first. These four subjects need to be completed before you can officially enter the degree, and you’ll be required to pass with a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 4.20.

If you have prior tertiary studies that satisfy part of the academic requirements of the degree, we can help you apply for credit.
