In Line or Online University

Updated on September 18, 2014

Online University Courses

In Australia now, there is a big move to further your education with online courses available at Open Universities Australia .

This gives busy people with full lives who can't attend a University a chance to further their studies and complete the course of their choice, in their own time, receiving the same accreditation when passing as if they did.

A wonderful opportunity for people interested in changing their career path, and venturing forth into a new vocation that they have always dreamt of doing but circumstances did not permit at the time.


Open To All

Online studies and open universities are geared toward those busy working people or home parents who have little time to go to a university and study but want to improve themselves with a further education leading them to a better job on completion of their studies.

Stay at home mums for example would find it most difficult to attend a university but they could certainly study a university course online, fitting in their course around the child or children's activities and needs, studying from home.

These courses are available to all, young and old, set up to fit many different scenarios, being flexible enough to keep in mind the different position each student is in at the time.

Whether they want to study full time or part time, whether they have children or if they are working full time or part time, each case is assessed, giving advise to students in the best ways possible in which the course chosen would suit their lifestyle that they lead to achieve the most from it. Working their studies around their work and activities.

A wonderful opportunity for everyone regardless of age and education giving one room to improve.

Pick Your Online Course

You can study almost any University course you like online through Open University Australia.

There are many courses available to all students many included under these titles.

Arts and Humanities

Business studies

Education Courses

Health Courses

IT Courses

Law and Justice Courses

Science and Engineering

This is a concise a curriculum as at any university in Australia and overseas and the courses and units making up these studies are provided by many of our top Universities in Australia such as, Curtin University, Griffith University, Monash University, RMIT and Swinburne University among many others.

Many people still have the feeling that a University course completed and graduated from online does not carry the same weight and credibility as that of an on campus course, not having been involved in your course live so to speak, and being part of the on campus life, although online courses are run by some of the finest Universities.

I think that this is now an out dated opinion and online education of any kind is looked at with the same creditably.

University online education meets the same education requirement as an on campus courses, giving online lectures and tutorials at scheduled times, a student discussion board and access to lectures and teaches in times of trouble.

If you are busy but really want to pursue that some thing in your life, there is an opportunity of a lifetime for many to fulfill your educational dreams otherwise left, enrolling in an online course so you can study from home.

      When I worked at Barton TAFE in the '90's I learned about the great work they were doing getting online courses set up for the internet. It was a truly massive job being undertaken by TAFE's and Universities in Australia to make university available to people everywhere, even if they couldn't attend the physical campus.

      I also believe in 'recognition of prior learning' which was coming in at that same time, as it gives you credits for your workplace training and skills base.
