Curtin is an experienced provider of online learning – we’ve been delivering online courses to students worldwide for more than 20 years. We offer an engaging, interactive and convenient learning experience online either directly through Curtin or through Open Universities Australia (Curtin OUA), giving you more flexibility to study when and where it suits you.
Postgraduate courses are usually for those who already have a university degree, although there are some exceptions.
Undergraduate courses are for people who haven’t previously graduated from university.
You can study a Curtin degree through Open Universities Australia (Curtin OUA), which offers some different Curtin courses to the ones available at Curtin.
Don’t feel ready to take on a full degree or don’t have much time? Curtin also offers free short online courses called MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses).
Our MicroMasters programs are fully online and provide professional, multidisciplinary learning opportunities to learners anywhere in the world.
Our partnership with edX allows you to study online, anywhere around the world and gain an internationally recognised qualification from Curtin University.
Curtin is now offering you the opportunity to build your degree and study up to two online units, without needing to meet any admission criteria.
