Complete your degree fully-online with OUA

I have studied a number of university degrees. While I know how to research and learn from books, I find the university programs give me mentoring and access to relevant, reliable knowledge, which I may not find on my own.

Studying online suits me as I am in control of my time and my learning experience. It is accessible in most places and does not require attendance at a specific location.

Gain admission to Curtin via OUA

If you’re a domestic student, you can use your OUA studies to gain admission to some Curtin courses. To be eligible, you must have completed either four tertiary level OUA units OR two tertiary level OUA units, plus have separate evidence of English competency.
