With hundreds of subjects to choose from, most with no entry requirements, you can study online with a leading university.
Get into uni with our open-door policy
We make studying at leading Australian unis possible for everyone—when you enrol through us there are no entry requirements for most undergraduate subjects.
Explore hundreds of subjects. Choose from arts, business, education, health, IT, law, or science. And enrol online with access to full government funding (subject to eligibility).
Through OUA, you can sign up to an undergraduate subject and start studying straight away. There’s no need to visit a uni campus, and no waiting for uni approval.
You can get into uni, no matter what your education history might be. At Open Universities Australia, our door is always open.
From a single subject to a full degree
For most degrees, after you successfully complete a few subjects you’ll be ready for a place at your uni. Accepting a place means you’ll become an official student of that uni. You won’t be affected by future changes to the degree structure—so your path to graduation is secure.
When you enrol through us, you can select elective subjects from multiple unis and build a degree that’s tailored to you. Without a rigid structure from just one uni, you have the freedom to personalise your degree based on your interests or career goals.
On successful completion of the required subjects, you’ll be awarded your degree and invited to graduate—exactly the same as on-campus students and with the same recognition.
If you complete subjects from a range of unis, you’ll be awarded your degree from the uni you studied with the most.

More choice, less commitment
Through us you can explore hundreds of online subjects and enrol to study with a leading uni. No need to visit lots of websites, or step foot on campus. With a huge range of online subjects available, we can help you find the right fit for you and get you studying sooner with multiple start dates throughout the year.
Single subjects are ideal to refresh your knowledge on a specific topic, develop a new skill, learn for personal interest or as an entry point towards a degree.
All subjects are studied online through your uni's learning management system (LMS). You get access to your tutors, study material, lectures and student forums in one place, at any time.
After completing a single subject there’s no commitment to continue your studies, but if you do, you’ll get credit towards a degree qualification.
Stay on track, at your own pace
Studying a single subject when and where it suits you means that you keep progressing towards your goal while working or travelling. Kick-start your degree by studying online while overseas, or study at home after work to keep your skills up-to-date.
If you’re studying on-campus you can fast-track your degree. By combining online and on-campus study, you can make up for subjects you missed, or study during on-campus semester breaks.
For those who can’t wait to get started at uni, undergraduate subjects are available to students aged 16 years and over. If you have your parents’ permission, you can start even younger!
