If Year 12 didn't pan out as you'd hoped, know that it's not over. No matter your results, nothing stands between you and university study. In fact, if you completed high school remotely, you've gained the digital skills to continue with university study online. Better yet, you can do so with no entry requirements. 

Choose to start your university study with leading Australian universities online through OUA, and you'll be able to get started without worrying about your ATAR. 

The best part? You can do so with confidence - using the very digital skills you built while studying Year 12 online. 

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.

You already know how to study online

With the events of 2020 forcing high school students across Australia to study online, you have a leg up and into online university study already. So why not use it?

You know how to motivate yourself to meet deadlines online, you know how to navigate digital learning systems, and you know the freedom that comes with studying from your home.

Choose to start your degree online through OUA, and you'll be able to continue using the digital skills you gained while studying remotely in Year 12 as you start your university experience. 

Switch from online to on-campus down the track

Keen to live the on-campus life eventually? 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 after the pandemic – it makes no difference that you studied online or with a different university. On the other hand, if you find online study is still ideal well into the future, 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.
