Getting started

Of all the ways to change your path in life, we think education is the best. But it's a big commitment, especially if you're already working, bringing up a family or don't like the idea of giving up your social life. That's why we make online study as flexible and accessible as we can.

Study through OUA

Find the right study fit for your life through Open Universities Australia.

Why study online?

There are a multitude of reasons why you should study online, but we've narrowed it down to a handful of the very best.

Financial assistance

Your study goals are within reach of your budget.

Commonwealth supported places

You can now apply to study at OUA as a Commonwealth supported place (CSP) student. A CSP is an enrolment in which the Australian Government subsidises a portion of the course fees and you pay the remainder through a student contribution amount via a student loan if you wish.

Fees and charges

We make navigating the maze of tuition fees and charges easy.

International students

Whether you're an international student or an Australian living overseas, you can access courses and units online through Open Universities Australia.
