Undergraduate subjects

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

There’s more than one way to get a degree. Studying single subjects is the flexible option. You can start studying now, build up your grades, and think about the best course for you. After you successfully complete a few single subjects, you’ll be ready to take the next step towards your degree. Our student advisors can help you choose and guide you through the application process.

The good news is, if you decide to commit to a degree, you’re already on the path to graduation. We’ll help you get credit for your successful subjects, that you can add towards your degree’s requirements. Continue to study online, anywhere, anytime—and graduate with the same qualification that on-campus students receive.

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. With most unis, if you have your parents’ permission, you can start even younger!
