Why study online?


For more than 20 years, we've helped to make university education available to people who might otherwise have had no (or very limited) access to it. Every day we work with students from all sorts of different backgrounds, so we know very well that no two learners are the same - and frankly we love that fact.


When you study with OUA, you're online but never alone.

An answer to your question - whether it's about your studies in general, an assignment in particular or something bigger (like a personal matter) - is very often only a phone call or email away.


When you study with Open Universities Australia you get the flexibility that comes from studying online, and you get to work towards an undergraduate or postgraduate degree from a leading Australian university - RMIT, Griffith, Macquarie and Curtin - just to name a few.

Open Access

Our goal has always been to make education easier to access. One of the ways we do this is by making many of our undergraduate courses and units available without academic requirements - things like ATARs (Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks, the scores students receive after completing secondary school in Australia) and grade point averages.


Today, through OUA, you can study units and courses with 13 leading Australian universities across seven areas of undergraduate or postgraduate study. And in many cases you can tailor your study to suit what interests you.
