Open Universities Australia is an Australian online higher education organisation that connects students to the right university both for online courses of study or individual units, whether credited or not.
This method of education is good for those wanting to fast-track their studies with four semesters per year, for those working from home, or for homeschoolers without school certificates.
Earn the same degree as you would on-campus, or you can always study 2-4 units and then decide to transfer the credit to a different university on-campus.
You can study internationally whether or not your an Australian citizen.
Seven Australian-based universities control the ownership of the organisation, with over 170 qualifications to choose from.
The majority of undergraduate courses offered have no first year entry requirements and no quotas for most courses.
Even though it is an online degree you receive as much or even more individually tailored help as you would with small class sizes, and can choose to graduate with the chosen university.
They even used to send you a complete study pack with printed readings, now offered as PDFs.
