We give you the flexibility to study online with leading Australian universities, without stepping foot on campus.
Your degree, your way
Study a Diploma, Associate Degree, or Bachelor Degree online with unis across Australia from anywhere, at any time, at your own pace. With hundreds of degrees to choose from, we can help you find the right degree for you.
By bringing together subjects from a range of unis, you have the flexibility to study what interests you most, or is best aligned with your study goals and career plans.
When you enrol through us, you’re able to customise your course and study journey. Not only can you personalise your study load to fit with your lifestyle, you can also tailor your degree by studying across multiple unis.
Graduate with a leading uni
Whether you’ve chosen to study with multiple unis or just the one, after you’ve successfully completed the subjects required, you’ll graduate with exactly the same qualification as on-campus students.
There’s no difference to a qualification achieved by studying online or on-campus—it’s just the study mode that’s different. If you study subjects with multiple unis, you’ll graduate with a qualification from the uni you studied with most.
