Graham’s first university degree didn’t quite work out for him. Rather than pursuing an area of study he was passionate about, Graham says he found himself chasing somebody else’s dreams, and it left him with unfinished business he was determined to resolve.
“It is absolutely human to question your ability to do something. You need to understand that you will have bad days … but you owe it to yourself to find something that you’re really interested in and study it. Your chances of succeeding will be far higher.”
Using his years of work experience and a portfolio of digital designs and media production, Graham was able to secure a spot in a Masters degree in design with RMIT University. Finally, he was studying the right course for him.
Despite living 5 minutes away from a university in his hometown, studying through OUA was the only viable option because of his busy work schedule and family commitments. Using OUA, Graham is able to fit study around his lifestyle and is supported to work at his own pace.
What is Open Universities Australia?
OUA is not actually a university. It’s better.
Through OUA, you have access to leading Australian universities such as Macquarie, RMIT, Curtin, Swinburne, Griffith, La Trobe or Murdoch University. You study the exact same degree as an on-campus student. The only difference is that you study online, on your own terms. You choose when, where and at what pace you earn your qualification.
OUA has no barriers to enrolment. Entry into our courses is not dependent on your education background. Regardless of whether or not you finished high school or received an ATAR score, we’ll help you get into your desired course.
