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 means everyone can study online at university. Many degrees let you enrol in subjects without entry requirements. As long as you are successful in your initial subjects, you can proceed into a full degree.

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

Switch from online to on-campus down the track

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 different universities. On the other hand, if you find online study works for you and your lifestyle, you can complete your whole degree online, and get the same qualification as on campus students.

Taylah's study story
