We aim to:
- Write, design, and code our website so that anyone can use it.
- Provide study information that’s easy to understand.
- Offer an enrolment process that’s easy to navigate.
This statement applies to all pages and information on our website at open.edu.au. Other online resources that we link to may have accessibility limitations:
When you study online at university, your uni is responsible for accessibility. This means that learning management systems (LMS), portals, and study materials are beyond the scope of this statement.
In some areas of our website, we use software applications that we don’t own. These might include messaging apps, calendars, and video players. While we try to use third-party apps that share our commitment to accessibility, their functionality is outside of our control.
We’re working towards the requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, but we’re also realistic. We work on changes systematically, often in small but important increments. Sometimes you won’t notice, but rest assured, we’re making improvements daily.
Accessibility questions and feedback
If you find anything on our website difficult to use, please reach out to let us know. We welcome all constructive feedback. We'll send it to our technical teams for careful consideration. Because we aim to deliver fair outcomes for everyone, we prioritise accessibility complaints.
For all accessibility issues and feedback, you can contact us via email or post.

The fine print
We welcome feedback about your accessibility experience and Open Universities Australia.
If your feedback is not about our website or how we’ve managed your enrolment, we’ll forward it to the relevant people. For example, if you contact us about an accessibility problem with your LMS, we’ll forward it to your university.
If you’re a third-party advocate acting on behalf of a current or former student enrolled through OUA, we ask that you include third-party authority authorisation describing how you represent the student.
