Get into uni regardless of your ATAR score

At Open Universities Australia, we believe your ATAR doesn’t always reflect your true academic capabilities. That’s why we provide access to hundreds of university degrees, which you can start studying online without entry requirements.

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

Our unique open-door policy makes it possible for everyone to study online at university. Through us, you can enrol in undergraduate subjects that are part of a degree you would like to do, without worrying about entry requirements.  

Once you pass your initial subjects, you can proceed into a full degree—or even transfer to an on-campus place. Either way, you’ll graduate with a qualification from the university of your choice.

Check out our short video, which breaks it down in just over one minute.

Start by browsing these popular subjects

Do you already have an undergraduate degree in mind? Simply search for the degree and choose the subjects you need to get started.

If you’re not quite sure which degree is right for you, try out one or two subjects first. You may be able to transfer your credits to the degree that you ultimately choose.
