This year hasn't panned out quite like many of us has hoped. For Year 12s around Australia, even more so. The good news is with Open Universities Australia (OUA), nothing stands between you and university.

A number of subjects available through OUA have no entry requirements – making them an ideal pathway to studying a degree. Yes, you can get started at uni without worrying about your ATAR.

Our friendly student advisors will help you select subjects that unlock the future you've been dreaming of. Better yet, you can choose from a range of leading Australian universities to study with. 

Enrol directly into subjects now and start studying in the next available study period. No applications needed. It's as simple as that.

Too good to be true? Here’s how it works

OUA has a unique open-door policy. We can help anyone, no matter their results, study online with top-notch universities.

So, how does it work? Well, a number of our degrees let you choose one or two open enrolment subjects to begin with, without having to apply for the full degree. If you pass these subjects successfully, they can often be credited to a full degree.

Switch from online to on-campus

Keen to live the on-campus life? Just because you started studying a degree online doesn’t mean that’s how you have to finish it. You can get credit for completed subjects and transfer on campus – it makes no difference that you studied online or with a different university. On the other hand, if you develop a love for online study, you can complete your whole degree online, and get the same qualification as on campus.

Taylah's study story

Instead of letting the ATAR needed for her dream course worry her during Year 12, Taylah enrolled in a few core subjects from Griffith University's Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice through Open Universities Australia. From there, she got accepted into the full degree. She hasn't looked back.
